Technical Summary This specification describes the configuration of proactive MPLS-TP Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) Functions for a given Label Switched Path (LSP) using a set of TLVs that are carried by the LSP-Ping protocol. In particular it specifies the mechanisms necessary to establish MPLS-TP OAM entities at the maintenance points for monitoring and performing measurements on an LSP, as well as defining information elements and procedures to configure proactive MPLS-TP OAM functions running between LERs. Working Group Summary The WG process was smooth and without controversy. It was necessary to repeat the working group last call in order to ensure sufficient review and comment. Document Quality The document has been carefully reviewed and updated based on review and last call comments. There is also some related implementation work in progress. Personnel Ross Callon is the Document Shepherd. Deborah Brungard is the Responsible Area Director.
