This document describes procedures to support node protection for
Point-to-Multipoint and Multipoint-to-Multipoint Label Switched Paths
(P2MP and MP2MP LSPs) that have been built by the Multipoint Label
Distribution Protocol (mLDP).  In order to protect a node N, the
Point of Local Repair (PLR) Label Switching Router (LSR) of N must
learn the Merge Point (MPT) LSR(s) of node N such that traffic can be
redirected to them in case node N fails.  Redirecting the traffic
around the failed node N depends on existing Point-to-Point (P2P)
Label Switched Paths (LSPs).  The pre-established LSPs originate from
the PLR LSR and terminate on the MPT LSRs while bypassing LSR N.

This document is a product of the Multiprotocol Label Switching Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
