Subject: Protocol Action: 'Generalized Labels for Lambda-Switching Capable Label Switching Routers' to Proposed Standard (draft-ietf-ccamp-gmpls-g-694-lambda-labels-11.txt)
The IESG has approved the following document:
- 'Generalized Labels for Lambda-Switching Capable Label Switching
(draft-ietf-ccamp-gmpls-g-694-lambda-labels-11.txt) as a Proposed

This document is a companion to the Generalized Multi-Protocol Label
Switching (GMPLS) signaling. [RFC3471] defined that a wavelength label
(section 184.108.40.206) "only has significance between two neighbors" and
global wavelength semantics is not considered. In order to facilitate
interoperability in a network composed of lambda switch-capable
equipment, this document defines a standard lambda label format, which
is compliant with both [G.694.1](DWDM-grid) and [G.694.2](CWDM-grid).
Working Group Summary
This document received much attention and discussion in its early
revisions. The document has been largely stable for quite some time,
mainly needing revisions as part of the publication process.
There have been no public statements related to intent to implement, but
the portions of the extensions are now being used as part of the GMPLS
tool set and are expected to implemented (at least) in those contexts.
The label format and information have been discussed in depth with ITU-T
Q6/15 including at a joint meeting.
