Body
Thank you for your liaison statement on March 27, 2008 to Q14/15 regarding the
AAP version of G.7712, in particular regarding the text in G.7712 that is
similar to that in the AAP version of Y.1720, which is the subject of your
earlier liaison statement to Q9/15. Please note that the relevant text in the
G.7712 AAP document has been addressed to the satisfaction of all the involved
parties, including those who raised the AAP comments. That is, a warning note
has been added to G.7712 to note that the MPLS-related data communication
functions specified in G.7712 (e.g. protection, termination, encapsulation,
interworking, etc) may need to be modified in order to be aligned with IETF
MPLS-TP (Transport Profile), which is being worked on at the time of
publication of this revision of G.7712. Please also note that to our knowledge,
there are no other ITU-T SG15 Recommendations that carry similar text.
