Many network devices support parallel packet processing.  This
document describes how Forwarding and Control Element Separation
(ForCES) can model a network device's parallelization datapath using
constructs defined by the ForCES model (RFC 5812) and controlled via
the ForCES protocol (RFC 5810).

This document is a product of the Forwarding and Control Element Separation Working Group of the IETF.
