This document provides the network management framework for the
Transport Profile for Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS-TP).

This framework relies on the management terminology from the ITU-T to
describe the management architecture that could be used for an
MPLS-TP management network.

The management of the MPLS-TP network could be based on multi-tiered
distributed management systems.  This document provides a description
of the network and element management architectures that could be
applied and also describes heuristics associated with fault,
configuration, and performance aspects of the management system.

This document is a product of a joint Internet Engineering Task Force
(IETF) / International Telecommunication Union Telecommunication
Standardization Sector (ITU-T) effort to include an MPLS Transport
Profile within the IETF MPLS and PWE3 architectures to support the
capabilities and functionalities of a packet transport network. 
This document is not an Internet Standards Track specification; it is
published for informational purposes.

This document is a product of the Multiprotocol Label Switching Working Group of the IETF.
