Title : OSPF-TE: An experimental extension to OSPF for Traffic
Author(s) : P. Srisuresh, P. Joseph

This document defines OSPF-TE, an experimental traffic engineering
(TE) extension to the link-state routing protocol OSPF. New TE
LSAs are designed to disseminate TE metrics within an autonomous
System (AS) - intra-area as well as inter-area. An Autonomous
System may consist of TE and non-TE nodes. Non-TE nodes are
uneffected by the distribution of TE LSAs. A stand-alone TE Link
State Database (TE-LSDB), separate from the native OSPF LSDB, is
generated for the computation of TE circuit paths. OSPF-TE is
also extendible to non-packet networks such as SONET/TDM and
optical networks. A transition path is provided for those
currently using [OPQLSA-TE] and wish to adapt OSPF-TE.

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.
