This document provides an overview of the Operations, Administration,
and Maintenance (OAM) toolset for MPLS-based transport networks.
The toolset consists of a comprehensive set of fault
management and performance monitoring capabilities (operating in the
data plane) that are appropriate for transport networks as required
in RFC 5860 and support the network and services at different nested
levels.  This overview includes a brief recap of the MPLS Transport
Profile (MPLS-TP) OAM requirements and functions and the generic
mechanisms created in the MPLS data plane that allow the OAM packets
to run in-band and share their fate with data packets.  The protocol
definitions for each of the MPLS-TP OAM tools are defined in separate
documents (RFCs or Working Group documents), which are referenced by this
document.  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.
