A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Multiprotocol Label Switching Working Group of the IETF.

	Title           : LSP-Ping and BFD encapsulation over ACH
	Author(s)       : N. Bahadur, et al.

LSP-Ping and BFD for MPLS are existing and widely deployment OAM
mechanisms for MPLS LSPs.  This document describes an ACH
encapsulation for LSP-Ping, that would enable use of LSP-Ping for
networks where IP addressing is not in use.  This document also
clarifies the use of BFD for MPLS LSPs using ACH encapsulation, when
IP addressing may not be available and/or it may not be desirable to
encapsulate BFD packets in IP.
