Title : IP Fast Reroute Framework
Author(s) : M. Shand, S. Bryant

Pages : 14

This document provides a framework for the development of IP
fast-reroute mechanisms which provide protection against link or
router failure by invoking locally determined repair paths. Unlike
MPLS Fast-reroute, the mechanisms are applicable to a network
employing conventional IP routing and forwarding. An essential part
of such mechanisms is the prevention of packet loss caused by the
loops which normally occur during the re-convergence of the network
following a failure.

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.
