Technical Summary

  The document provides the network management framework for the
  Transport Profile of Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS-TP). It
  relies on the management terminology from the ITU-T and describes
  a NM architecture for the Transport Profile of MPLS.

  Such management could be based on multi-tiered distributed management
  systems.  Thes document provides network and element management 
  architectures that could be applied.

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.
  There are no outstanding issues. It is put on the standards
  track to resolve issues around how the ITU-T references IETF
  documents.

Document Quality

  The document is a framework document and will mainly be used 
  as input to the network management solutions specifications
  that will be published shortly.
