Technical Summary

   Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) is an integral part
   of transport connections, hence it is required that OAM functions are
   activated/deactivated in sync with connection commissioning/
   decommissioning; avoiding spurious alarms and ensuring consistent
   operation.  In certain technologies, OAM entities are inherently
   established once the connection is set up, while other technologies
   require extra configuration to establish and configure OAM entities.
   This document specifies extensions to RSVP-TE to support the
   establishment and configuration of OAM entities along with Label
   Switched Path signaling.
