   This document provides use case studies and network design
   considerations for Multiprotocol Label Switching Transport Profile
   (MPLS-TP).

   In the recent years, MPLS-TP has emerged as the technology of choice
   for the new generation of packet transport. Many service providers
   (SPs) are working to replace the legacy transport technologies, e.g.
   SONET/SDH, TDM, and ATM technologies, with MPLS-TP for packet
   transport, in order to achieve higher efficiency, lower operational
   cost, while maintaining transport characteristics.

   The use cases for MPLS-TP include Metro Ethernet access and
   aggregation, Mobile backhaul, and packet optical transport. The
   design considerations discussed in this documents ranging from
   operational experience; standards compliance; technology maturity;
   end-to-end forwarding and OAM consistency; compatibility with
   IP/MPLS networks; multi-vendor interoperability; and optimization
   vs. simplicity design trade off discussion. The general design
   principle is to provide reliable, manageable, and scalable transport

Some applications require the ability to provide an elevated
probability of session establishment to specific sessions in times of
network congestion.  When supported over the Internet Protocol suite,
this may be facilitated through a network-layer admission control
solution that supports prioritized access to resources (e.g.,
bandwidth).  These resources may be explicitly set aside for
prioritized sessions, or may be shared with other sessions.  This

Last Call: <draft-ietf-ippm-loss-episode-metrics-03.txt> (Loss Episode Metrics for IPPM) to Proposed Standard


The IESG has received a request from the IP Performance Metrics WG (ippm)
to consider the following document:
- 'Loss Episode Metrics for IPPM'
  <draft-ietf-ippm-loss-episode-metrics-03.txt> as a Proposed Standard

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the
ietf <at> ietf.org mailing lists by 2011-11-15. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to iesg <at> ietf.org instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.

Abstract

   The IETF has developed a one way packet loss metric that measures the
   loss rate on a Poisson probe stream between two hosts.  However, the
   impact of packet loss on applications is in general sensitive not
   just to the average loss rate, but also to the way in which packet
   losses are distributed in loss episodes (i.e., maximal sets of
   consecutively lost probe packets).  This draft defines one-way packet
   loss episode metrics, specifically the frequency and average duration
   of loss episodes, and a probing methodology under which the loss
   episode metrics are to be measured.

Document Action: 'Secure Password Framework for IKEv2' to Informational RFC (draft-kivinen-ipsecme-secure-password-framework-03.txt)

The IESG has approved the following document:
- 'Secure Password Framework for IKEv2'
  (draft-kivinen-ipsecme-secure-password-framework-03.txt) as an
Informational RFC

This document has been reviewed in the IETF but is not the product of an
IETF Working Group.

The IESG contact person is Sean Turner.

A URL of this Internet Draft is:
http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-kivinen-ipsecme-secure-password-framework/

Technical Summary

   This document creates a generic way for Internet Key
   Exchange (IKEv2) to use any of the symmetric secure
   password authentication methods. There are multiple
   methods already specified in other documents and this
   document does not add new one. This document specifies
   a common way so those methods can agree on which
   method is to be used in current connection. This
   document also provides a common way to transmit secure
   password authentication method specific payloads
   between peers.

Working Group Summary

   The IPsecME working group was chartered to provide
   Internet Key Exchange (IKEv2) a symmetric secure
