This document describes the use of RSVP (Resource Reservation Protocol), including all the necessary extensions, to establish Point-to-Point (P2P) Traffic Engineered IP (IP-TE) Label Switched Path (LSP) tunnel(s) for use in native IP forwarding networks. This document proposes specific extensions to the RSVP protocol to allow the establishment of explicitly routed IP paths using RSVP as the signaling protocol. The result is the instantiation of an IP Path which can be automatically routed away from network failures, congestion, and bottlenecks.
