Subject: Communication to ITU-T Q6/15 and Q12/15 from IETF's CCAMP Working
Group on Flexible Grids
Purpose: For Information

The CCAMP Working Group of IETF would like to inform you of our beginning work
on enhancing GMPLS's support for Wavelength Switched Optical Network (WSON)
equipment to support Flexible Grids. With the recent progress on optical
network technology regarding Flexible Grids, CCAMP participants are interested
in investigating these new applications to ensure the applicability of GMPLS
protocols for connection setup and path computation.

We would appreciate if you would keep us informed of your progress in this
area. In CCAMP, this work is in a very early phase of development, as we
progress our work, we will communicate progress in this area.

Best regards,
Lou Berger and Deborah Brungard
IETF CCAMP Working Group Co-Chairs
