MPLS-TP - 74th IETF (SanFran)1 Linear Protection for MPLS-TP draft-weingarten-mpls-tp-linear-protection-01.txt Stewart Bryant Yaacov Weingarten Nurit Sprecher Annamaria Fulignoli Huub van Helvoort John E. Drake (contributor)
MPLS-TP - 74th IETF (SanFran)2 TP Requirements #56: MPLS-TP MUST support 1+1 protection Bidirectional P2P Unidirectional P2P and P2MP #57: MPLS-TP MUST support 1:n (1:1) protection Bidirectional P2P Unidirectional P2MP
MPLS-TP - 74th IETF (SanFran)3 Linear protection Linear protection provides a fast and simple protection switching mechanism. It provides a clear indication of the protection status. Linear protection fits best in mesh networks.
MPLS-TP - 74th IETF (SanFran)4 Draft highlights Terminology based on RFC 4427 Provides architecture of 1+1 and 1:1 protection schemes Description of the process Currently, cover 1+1 uni&bi-directional p2p, 1+1 unidirectional p2mp, 1:1 bi-directional p2p, and 1:1 unidirectional p2mp 1:n for further study, possibly in separate draft Proposes a protocol for Protection Switching Coordination (PSC) Transmitted over G-ACh Presents a logical architecture for the PSC process
MPLS-TP - 74th IETF (SanFran)7 Protection Switching Trigger Actions Protection switching may be performed when: A failure condition (failed or degraded) is detected (either by OAM or by control plane) on the active entity and is not declared on the recovery entity. An external operator command is received (e.g. Forced Switch, Manual Switch). A request to switch over is received from the far end - relevant in case of 1:1 protection switching only! Priorities between the various triggers will be defined in future draft.
MPLS-TP - 74th IETF (SanFran)8 Protection Switching Coordination Necessary for bidirectional protection and for all 1:1 protection Allows coordination between the end-points of protection domain Used to coordinate protection of unidirectional faults Used to verify that both ends are operating under the same configuration Revertive vs Non-revertive Presented as a single-phase protocol
MPLS-TP - 74th IETF (SanFran)9 Next Steps Resolve open issues How closely to adhere to Y.1731/G.8031 format for PSC Should 1:n protection be covered in a separate document. Need clear definition of 1:n as opposed to (1:1)^n 1:n protection requires more coordination – not a single phase protocol Request adoption as working group draft Other comments?
