Abstract

   This document presents extensions to the Path Computation Element
   Communication Protocol (PCEP) for a child PCE to abstract its domain
   information to its parent for supporting a hierarchical PCE system.

1.  Introduction

   A hierarchical PCE architecture is described in RFC 6805, in which a
   parent PCE maintains an abstract domain topology, which contains its
   child domains (seen as vertices in the topology) and the connections
   among them.

   For a domain for which a child PCE is responsible, connections
   attached to the domain may comprise inter-domain links and Area
   Border Routers (ABRs).  For a parent PCE to have the abstract domain
