Future networks will consist of photonic switches, optical
crossconnects, and routers that may be configured with bundled links
consisting of a number of user component links and an associated
control channel. This draft specifies a link management protocol
(LMP) that runs between neighboring nodes and will be used for both
link provisioning and fault isolation. A unique feature of LMP is
that it is able to isolate faults in both opaque and transparent
networks, independent of the encoding scheme used for the component
links. LMP will be used to maintain control channel connectivity,
verify component link connectivity, and isolate link, fiber, or
channel failures within the network.

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
