Procedures and protocol mechanisms to enable efficient and accurate
measurement of packet loss, delay, and throughput in MPLS networks
are defined in RFC 6374.

The MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) is the set of MPLS protocol
functions applicable to the construction and operation of packet-
switched transport networks.

This document describes a profile of the general MPLS loss, delay,
and throughput measurement techniques that suffices to meet the
specific requirements of MPLS-TP.

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 Pseudowire Emulation Edge-to-Edge
(PWE3) architectures to support the capabilities and functionalities
of a packet transport network as defined by the ITU-T.  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.
