RFC 5994, "Application of Ethernet Pseudowires to MPLS Transport Networks", October 2010

Source of RFC: pwe3 (int)
See Also: RFC 5994 w/ inline errata

Errata ID: 2547
Status: Verified
Type: Editorial

Throughout the document, when it says:


MPLS EXP field


EXP-Inferred-PSC LSP (E-LSP)

It should say:


MPLS Traffic Class field


Explicitly TC-encoded-PSC LSP (E-LSP)


RFC 5462 has carefully changed the terminology and updated RFCs 3032
and 3270 (among others); it has given a detailed explantion why this
needs to be done and confirmed that all future RFCs should
unconditionally use the updated terms.
See in particular Sections 2.1 and 2.2 of RFC 5462 for the updates to
RFC 3032 and RFC 3270 (respectively) that are relevant for this RFC.

Ironically, RFC 5994 cites RFC 5462, yet uses the obsolete terms. Sigh!
