This document defines Path Computation Element Communication Protocol
(PCEP) extensions for grouping two unidirectional MPLS-TE Label
Switched Paths (LSPs), one in each direction in the network, into an
associated bidirectional LSP.  These PCEP extensions can be applied
either using a stateful PCE for both PCE-initiated and PCC-initiated
LSPs or using a stateless PCE. The PCEP procedures defined are
applicable to the LSPs using RSVP-TE for signaling.

This document is a product of the Path Computation Element Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the
