Title : Link Management Protocol (LMP)
Author(s) : J. Lang
Filename : draft-ietf-ccamp-lmp-04.txt

Optical networks are being developed to include photonic switches,
optical crossconnects, and routers that are configured with control
channels and data links. Furthermore, multiple data links may be
combined to form a single traffic engineering (TE) link for routing
purposes. This draft specifies a link management protocol (LMP) that
runs between neighboring nodes and is used to manage TE links.
Specifically, LMP will be used to maintain control channel
connectivity, verify the physical connectivity of the data-bearing
channels, correlate the link property information, suppress
downstream alarms, and localize link failures for
protection/restoration purposes in both opaque and transparent

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
