The Transport Profile of Multiprotocol Label Switching
(MPLS-TP) is a packet-based transport technology based on the
MPLS Traffic Engineering (MPLS-TE) and pseudowire (PW) data-plane

This document describes a framework to support a comprehensive
set of Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM)
procedures that fulfill the MPLS-TP OAM requirements for fault,
performance, and protection-switching management and that do not
rely on the presence of a control plane.

This document is a product of a joint Internet Engineering Task
Force (IETF) / International Telecommunications 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.
