To deliver reliable service, multi-protocol label switching (MPLS)
requires a set of procedures to enable protection of the traffic
carried on label switched paths (LSPs). Thus existing signaling
mechanisms must be extended appropriately to support such
functionality. Recently, RSVP-TE  has introduced extensions to
RSVP to support the establishment of LSP tunnels. This draft extends
RSVP-TE to support path protection  in MPLS. Specifically, we
provide signaling support for establishing working and protection
LSPs and for propagating fault notification upon LSP failure.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
