Technical Summary

  This document lists architectural and functional requirements for the
  Operations, Administration and Maintenance of the MPLS Transport
  Profile. These requirements apply to pseudowires, Label Switched
  Paths, and MPLS-TP Sections.

Working Group Summary

  The document is part of the MPLS-TP project, the cooperation
  between IETF and ITU-T to specify an MPLS transport profile.
  The working group has consensus on the document, and the ITU-T
  has indicated that it supports the publication

  The ITU-T has one outstanding issue on which they could not reach
  consensus: there will a continued discussion on the requirements
  for OAM interworking/translation, and further requirements may be
  subsequently brought to the IETF in a new I-D.

  The document has been put on the standards track to resolve issues
  around how the ITU-T references IETF documents.

Document Quality

  The document is a requirements specification and will mainly
  be used as input to the OAM solutions specifications that will be
  published shortly.

Personnel

   Loa Andersson (loa@pi.nu) is the Document Shepherd.
