Hi Guys,

If a provider already have ciena as transport with ip/mpls core on cisco
ASR, why would they want to deploy CPT with mpls-tp?

Can we compare mpls-te vs mpls-tp or is this comparison of apples and

I am new to mpls-tp and trying to understand in which area mpls-tp really
help. it is said that mpls-tp has better oam features, its ipless but whats
wrong if i have ip/mpls core, i have TE that provide all redundancy, can
configure diverse paths, reserve bandwidth, all maintenance features like
local repair.

I will be thankful if you share your thoughts
