This document presents an applicability of existing MPLS protection
mechanisms, both local and end-to-end, to the MPLS Transport Profile
(MPLS-TP) in ring topologies.  This document does not propose any new
mechanisms or protocols.  Requirements for MPLS-TP protection
especially for protection in ring topologies are discussed in
"Requirements of an MPLS Transport Profile" (RFC 5654) and 
"MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) Survivability Framework" (RFC 6372).
This document discusses how most of the requirements are met by
applying linear protection as defined in RFC 6378 in a ring topology.
