Today, customers expect to run triple-play services through
BGP/MPLS IP-VPNs.  Some service providers will deploy services that
request Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees from a local Customer Edge
(CE) to a remote CE across the network.  As a result, the application 
(e.g., voice, video, bandwidth-guaranteed data pipe, etc.) requirements 
for an end-to-end QoS and reserving an adequate bandwidth continue to 

Service providers can use both an MPLS and an MPLS Traffic Engineering
(MPLS-TE) Label Switched Path (LSP) to meet their service objectives.  This
document describes service-provider requirements for supporting a customer
Resource ReSerVation Protocol (RSVP) and RSVP-TE over a BGP/MPLS IP-VPN.
