                 Stateful PCE for SR-MPLS Inter-domain
            draft-xiong-pce-stateful-pce-sr-inter-domain-01

Abstract

   This document proposes two solutions to perform the Segment Routing
   with MPLS data plane (SR-MPLS) inter-domain path computation and
   initiation with stateful PCEs and the use of Path Segment.

1.  Introduction

   The Path Computation Element (PCE) architecture is defined in
   [RFC4655] for MPLS Traffic Engineering (MPLS-TE) and Generalized MPLS
   (GMPLS) networks.  The Path Computation Element Communication
   Protocol (PCEP) defined in [RFC5440] provides mechanisms for PCEs to
   perform path computations in response to Path Computation Clients
   (PCCs) requests.

   [I-D.ietf-pce-segment-routing] proposes extensions to PCEP that allow
   a stateful PCE to compute TE paths in segment routing (SR) networks.
   As defined in [I-D.ietf-spring-mpls-path-segment], a path segment is
   used to identify a SR path and support bidirectional SR paths
   correlation.  [I-D.li-pce-sr-path-segment] proposed the extension for
   PCEP to operate with Path Segment.  [I-D.li-pce-sr-bidir-path]
   proposed the extension for PCEP to group two unidirectional SR Paths
   into an Associated Bidirectional SR Path.
   [I-D.xiong-spring-path-segment-sr-inter-domain] proposes the use of
   Path Segment in inter-domain scenarios for SR-MPLS network.  It is
   required to perform the SR inter-domain path computation and
   initiation with PCE deployment.
