RFC 4364 and RFC 4659 define an approach to building
provider-provisioned Layer 3 VPNs (L3VPNs) for IPv4 and IPv6.  It may
be desirable to use Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) to perform
admission control on the links between Customer Edge (CE) routers and
Provider Edge (PE) routers.  This document specifies procedures by
which RSVP messages traveling from CE to CE across an L3VPN may be
appropriately handled by PE routers so that admission control can be
performed on PE-CE links.  Optionally, admission control across the
provider's backbone may also be supported.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
