     Carrying Protocol Independent Multicast - Sparse Mode (PIM-SM)
  in Any-Source Multicast (ASM) Mode Trees over Multipoint LDP (mLDP)

Abstract

   When IP multicast trees created by Protocol Independent Multicast -
   Sparse Mode (PIM-SM) in Any-Source Multicast (ASM) mode need to pass
   through an MPLS domain, it may be desirable to map such trees to
   Point-to-Multipoint Label Switched Paths (P2MP LSPs).  This document
   describes how to accomplish this in the case where such P2MP LSPs are
   established using Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) Extensions for
   P2MP and Multipoint-to-Multipoint LSPs: Multipoint LDP (mLDP).

1.  Introduction

   [RFC6826] describes how to map Point-to-Multipoint Label Switched
   Paths (P2MP LSPs) created by mLDP [RFC6388] to multicast trees
   created by Protocol Independent Multicast - Sparse Mode (PIM-SM) in
   Source-Specific Multicast (SSM) mode [RFC4607].  This document
   describes how to map mLDP P2MP trees to multicast trees created by
