Title : Requirements for support of Diff-Serv-aware MPLS
Author(s) : F. Le Faucheur, W. Lai
Filename : draft-ietf-tewg-diff-te-reqts-07.txt
Pages : 19

This document presents the Service Provider requirements for support
of Diff-Serv aware MPLS Traffic Engineering (DS-TE).
Its objective is to provide guidance for the definition, selection
and specification of a technical solution addressing these
requirements. Specification for this solution itself is outside the
scope of this document.
A problem statement is first provided. Then, the document describes
example applications scenarios identified by Service Providers where
existing MPLS Traffic Engineering mechanisms fall short and Diff-
Serv-aware Traffic Engineering is required. The detailed
requirements that need to be addressed by the technical solution are
also reviewed. Finally, the document identifies the evaluation
criteria that should be considered for selection and definition of
the technical solution.

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
