BGP MCAST-VPN Route Types

Registration Procedure(s)
Standards Action
Reference
[RFC-ietf-l3vpn-mvpn-mldp-nlri-10][RFC6514]
Note
Values may be assigned from one of several ranges:

 - Range 0x01-0x3f: Generic/PIM Range.  Values are assigned from
   this range when the NLRI format associated with the route type
   presupposes that PIM or IGMP is the C-multicast control protocol,
   or when the NLRI format associated with the route type is
   independent of the C-multicast control protocol.

 - Range 0x43-0x7f: mLDP Range.  Values are assigned from this range
   when the NLRI format associated with the route type presupposes
   that mLDP is the C-multicast control protocol.

 - Range 0x80-0xff: This range is reserved; values should not be
   assigned from this range.

In general, whenever an assignment is requested from this registry,
two codepoints should be requested at the same time: one from the
Generic/PIM range (0x01-0x3f) and one from the mLDP range (0x43-0x7f). 
The two codepoints should have the same low-order 6 bits.  If one of 
the two codepoints is not actually needed, it should be registered 
anyway, and marked as "Reserved."
