Title : MPLS-TE Shared Mesh Protection

This document discusses the shared mesh protection concept. Its aim
is to provide fast, guaranteed recovery of service at significantly
less cost of protection capacity compared to other schemes. In
companion documents [1,2], extensions to RSVP-TE and OSPF-TE
protocols are proposed that enable shared mesh protection. Those
extensions, together with this document, first address global repair
with path-based protection switching, as opposed to local repair of
LSP failures and reroute. However, the concept can be extended
straightforwardly to the local repair techniques being considered in
the MPLS working group.

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
