In certain networking topologies, it may be advantageous to maintain
associations between endpoints and key transit points to support an
instance of a service. Such associations are known as Calls.
A Call does not provide the actual connectivity for transmitting user
traffic, but only builds a relationship by which subsequent
Connections may be made. In Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) such Connections
are known as Label Switched Paths (LSPs).
This document specifies how GMPLS RSVP-TE signaling may be used and
extended to support Calls. These mechanisms provide full and logical
The mechanisms proposed in this document are applicable to any
environment (including multi-area), and for any type of interface:
packet, layer-2, time-division multiplexed, lambda, or fiber

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.
