It's irrelevant what application RSVP-TE fits in. RSVP-TE and CR-LDP
do the same thing in slightly different ways.
[Bilel] only time will tell.
In an ideal world, CR-LDP as an extension of LDP would have been
the way to go. It's funny that you should be arguing on the other
side now -- let's do NTIP (read RSVP-TE) instead of LMP-WDM (read
CR-LDP) which is just an extension of LMP (read LDP) which nobody
needs anyway (read "TE is the only MPLS app"). Such is life ...
[Bilel] 2 very different situations. + RSVP-TE is an extension of RSVP --
Are you saying "TE is the only MPLS app" ? or is the JD effect?
