                    Labels to Address Prefixes

        I-D Tag:    draft-ietf-mpls-rfc3107bis-04.txt

This document specifies a set of procedures for using BGP to advertise
that a specified router has bound a specified MPLS label (or a
specified sequence of MPLS labels organized as a contiguous part of a
label stack) to a specified address prefix.  This can be done by
sending a BGP UPDATE message whose Network Layer Reachability
Information field contains both the prefix and the MPLS label(s) and
whose Next Hop field identifies the node at which said prefix is bound
to said label(s).  This document obsoletes RFC 3107.

This document is a product of the Multiprotocol Label Switching Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
