MPLS Protection and Restoration – Part 6 (RSVP Objects Used for MPLS Fast Reroute)

RSVP-Objects

RSVP Objects Used for MPLS Fast Reroute

There some RSVP Objects used in Fast Reroute(FRR). Beside this, RSVP-TE extend for this purposes. There are also some extensions on RSVP-TE for automatic signalling in protection tunnels.So some additional objects and flags are coming for FRR. These two additional objects are FAST_REROUTE and DETOUR which is the extention of RSVP-TE for fast-reroute signaling. The SESSION_ATTRIBUTE and RECORD_ROUTE objects are also extended with additional flags to support bandwidth and node protection features.

RSVP Objects
Let’s check these RSVP Objects detailly.

FAST_REROUTE Object

FAST_REROUTE Object is used to control the backup used for the protected LSP. This includes some parameters to be used for establishing protection path like setup and hold priorities, session attribute filters, and bandwidth. It also allows a specific local protection method to be requested (0x01 for one-to-one backup and 0x02 for facility backup). This object inserted into the PATH message by the Head-End.

DETOUR Object

The DETOUR object is used in the one-to-one backup method to identify detour LSPs.After the routers along the Path assign resources to the LSP, each generates a Path message for the detour path and includes the Detour Object.

PLR_ID : IPv4 address of the PLR that is the beginning point of the detour.
Avoid_Node_ID : IPv4 address of the first downstream node that the PLR is trying to avoid.
