        Topology Independent Fast Reroute using Segment Routing
               draft-ietf-rtgwg-segment-routing-ti-lfa-01

Abstract

   This document presents Topology Independent Loop-free Alternate Fast
   Re-route (TI-LFA), aimed at providing protection of node and
   adjacency segments within the Segment Routing (SR) framework.  This
   Fast Re-route (FRR) behavior builds on proven IP-FRR concepts being
   LFAs, remote LFAs (RLFA), and remote LFAs with directed forwarding
   (DLFA).  It extends these concepts to provide guaranteed coverage in
   any IGP network.  A key aspect of TI-LFA is the FRR path selection
   approach establishing protection over the expected post-convergence
   paths from the point of local repair, dramatically reducing the
   operational need to control the tie-breaks among various FRR options.
