Welcome to this IETF MPLS-TP page

MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) is the name of a technology being standardized by the IETF with support from and partly based on requirements from the ITU-T. The other cornerstones for MPLS-TP incorporate requirements brought directly to the IETF by services providers.

The IETF has organized a design team to lead and coordinate the MPLS-TP standardization, the MEAD team (MPLS Interoperability Design Team).

http://trac.tools.ietf.org/misc/mpls-tp-mib/wiki, a wiki has been set up to coordinate the work on the gap analysis for MPLS-TP MIBs.

MPLS-TP Steering Group

An MPLS-TP Steering Group has been established to oversee the management aspects of the work. The group is chaired by Malcolm Betts <Malcolm.BETTS@zte.com.cn> and Adrian Farrel <adrian.farrel@huawei.com>.

Members of the group hold management positions in the ITU-T and IETF. The objective of the group is to coordinate the work schedule, ensure that liaisons are up-to-date, and to resolve any issues and hot-spots.

The group will meet roughly once a month. Anyone with any concerns about process, schedules, or communications should bring their issues to any member of the group for inclusion on the next agenda.
