It is expected that MPLS-based recovery could become a viable option 
for obtaining faster restoration than layer 3 rerouting. To deliver 
reliable service, however, multi-protocol label switching (MPLS)[ ], 
[ ] requires a set of procedures to provide protection of the 
traffic carried on the label switched paths (LSPs). This imposes 
certain requirements on the path recovery process [ ], and requires 
procedures for the configuration of working and protection paths, 
for the communication of fault information to appropriate switching 
elements, and for the activation of appropriate switchover actions. 
This document specifies a mechanism for path protection switching 
and restoration in MPLS networks.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
