A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Forwarding and Control Element Separation Working Group of the IETF.

	Title           : Implementation Report for ForCES
	Author(s)       : E. Haleplidis, et al.

Forwarding and Control Element Separation (ForCES) defines an
architectural framework and associated protocols to standardize
information exchange between the control plane and the forwarding
plane in a ForCES Network Element (ForCES NE).  RFC3654 has defined
the ForCES requirements, and RFC3746 has defined the ForCES
framework.

This document is an implementation report of the ForCES Protocol,
Model and SCTP-TML, including the report on interoperability testing
and the current state of ForCES implementations.

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Forwarding and Control Element Separation Working Group of the IETF.

	Title           : ForCES Applicability Statement

The ForCES protocol defines a standard framework and mechanism for
the interconnection between Control Elements and Forwarding Elements
in IP routers and similar devices.  In this document we describe the
applicability of the ForCES model and protocol.  We provide example
deployment scenarios and functionality, as well as document
applications that would be inappropriate for ForCES.

Technical Summary

   This document defines the SCTP based TML (Transport Mapping Layer)
   for the ForCES protocol.  It explains the rationale for choosing the
   SCTP (Stream Control Transmission Protocol) [RFC4960] and also
   describes how this TML addresses all the requirements described in
   [RFC3654] and the ForCES protocol draft <draft-ietf-forces-protocol>.

Working Group Summary

   There is strong working group consensus behind this document. 
   It is an effort of several years work. 

Document Quality

   The document has been well reviewed. An interop in July 2009 
   between 3 different implementations by WG participant utilizing 
   draft version 4 was successful. In addition, there are two

The forwarding and Control Element Separation (ForCES) protocol
defines a standard communication and control mechanism through which
a Control Element (CE) can control the behavior of a Forwarding
Element (FE).  This document captures the experience of implementing
the ForCES protocol and model.  It's aim is to help others by
providing examples and possible strategies for implementing the
ForCES protocol.
