ok, btw, is there a reason to restrict to MS/line protection ring ?
If you refer to the APS protocol, this can be used in ring
protection and linear protection, because it operates between
source and sink of a trail or LSP.
In its most simple form it provides 1:1 protection, and more
general N:M protection
i was referring to the scope of the document - should it be restricted
to MS/line shared protection ring or include other types (e.g. path
protection ring) - note: in my view not
The reconfiguration of the ring after this first switch is controlplane
driven and concerns all nodes in the ring.
ok with this - like for other linear protection schemes the control
plane would be involved in the provisioning
also, what about the (informational) notification to maintain the
control plane aware about the data plane status after failure
detection and/or after the APS operation
Maybe it is a good idea to include a description in the document
Diego is preparing (in the book on functional modeling I need
six pages to describe this protection mechanism).
imho, an overview should be enough to skim the ring protection scheme
and the APS operation (no need to include full details that can be found
Have a nice weekend, Huub.
