This specification is complementary to the GMPLS Ethernet Label
Switching Architecture and Framework and describes the technology-specific
aspects of GMPLS control for Provider Backbone Bridge
Traffic Engineering (PBB-TE).  The necessary GMPLS extensions and
mechanisms are described to establish Ethernet PBB-TE point-to-point
(P2P) and point-to-multipoint (P2MP) connections.  This document
supports, but does not modify, the standard IEEE data plane.  

This document is a product of the Common Control and Measurement Plane Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
