The MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) supports static provisioning
of transport paths via a Network Management System (NMS) and
dynamic provisioning of transport paths via a control plane.  This
document provides the framework for MPLS-TP dynamic provisioning
and covers control-plane addressing, routing, path computation,
signaling, traffic engineering, and path recovery.  MPLS-TP uses
GMPLS as the control plane for MPLS-TP Label Switched Paths
(LSPs).  MPLS-TP also uses the pseudowire (PW) control plane for
pseudowires.  Management-plane functions are out of scope of
this document.

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
