RFCs 4328 and 7139 provide signaling extensions in Resource ReserVation Protocol - Traffic Engineering (RSVP-TE) to control the full set of Optical Transport Network (OTN) features. However, these specifications do not cover the additional Optical channel Data Unit (ODU) containers defined in G.709/Y.1331 for ODUC1, ODUC2, ODUC3, ODUC4, ODUC5, ODUC6, ODUC7, ODUC8 and ODUC9. This document defines new Signal Types for these additional containers.
