2 Introduction Definition:
hub & spoke multipoint LSP (short for HSMP LSP) Allows traffic both from root to leaf through P2MP LSP and also leaf to root along the co-routed reverse path. P1 Root P2 Transit node Leaf P3 P4 P5 Leaf Leaf

3 Applications Time synchronization based on [IEEE1588v2], requires sync and delay request message to follow the same path. HSMP for phase/time delivery with TCKs. HSMP for phase/time delivery with BCKs. Accurate quantification of one-way delay for P2MP connection requires time synchronization : HSMP LSP can be used to do time synchronization based on [IEEE1588v2] for P2MP connection.

4 Applications (cont) IPTV scenario
IGMP is used for signaling between senders and receivers, the messages from the receivers are travelling only from the leaves to the root (and from root towards leaves), but not from leaf to leaf. Traffic from the root is only replicated towards the leaves. Then leaf node receiving IGMP message (for SSM case) will join HSMP LSP, and send IGMP message upstream to root along HSMP LSP. P2MP PW with reverse path can multiplex to HSMP LSP instead of one P2MP LSP + independent reverse path. In that case, the operational cost will be reduced for maintaining only one HSMP LSP.

5 Setting up HSMP LSP The difference with MP2MP LSP:
The leaf LSRs can only send traffic to root node along the same path of traffic from root node to leaf node. HSMP LSP consists of: A downstream path Same as P2MP downstream path in MP2MP LSP A upstream path Only from leaf to root node, without communication among leaf and leaf nodes; Detail: HSMP LSP will allocate one label for all downstream node for the upstream path, while MP2MP LSP will allocate different labels for different downstream node.

6 HSMP LSP signaling Transit Node Root Leaf A LM [D<x,y>, L1]
