This document describes extensions to MPLS signaling required to support Generalized MPLS. Generalized MPLS extends MPLS to encompass time-division (e.g. SONET ADMs), wavelength (optical lambdas) and spatial switching (e.g. incoming port or fiber to outgoing port or fiber). This document presents a functional description of the extensions. Protocol specific formats and mechanisms are currently included in this draft but are expected to be split out into separate, per protocol documents.
