Technical Summary This document presents a set of requirements for the establishment and maintenance of Point-to-Multipoint (P2MP) Traffic Engineered (TE) Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Label Switched Paths (LSPs). There is no intent to specify solution specific details nor application specific requirements in this document. The requirements presented in this document are not limited to the requirements of packet switched networks, but also encompass the requirements of Layer two Switching (L2SC), Time Division Multiplexing (TDM), lambda and port switching networks managed by Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) protocols. Protocol solutions developed to meet the requirements set out in this document must attempt to be equally applicable to MPLS and GMPLS. Working Group Summary There was consensus within the WG to progress this document. Protocol Quality The document has been reviewed for the IESG by Alex Zinin.
