In this draft, we analyze the applicability of LoopFree Alternates in both core and access parts of Service Provider networks. We provide design guides to favor their applicability where relevant, typically in the access part of the network.

Item Type: Standardization Contributions
Additional Information: The standardization topics related to Pierre Francois’s activities for the period September-December 2011 in the Routing Area relate to «IP Fast Reroute». An IETF working group document («LFA applicability in SP networks», draft-ietf-rtgwg-lfa-applicability-04) co-authored with Clarence Filsfils, distinguished engineer at Cisco Systems, underwent working group last call in the RTGWG working group. This draft presents an analysis of the applicability of an IP Fast Reroute technique called «Loop-free alternates» in Internet Service Provider Networks. This work has been performed in collaboration with Cisco Systems, France Telecom - Orange, AT&T, and Deutsche Telekom.
