This memo proposes to use COPS for the communication between a Label Switching Router (LSR) and a Path Computation Server (PCS). Path computation is in much regard a complex function and might be out- sourced. For this reason a protocol between an LSR and a Path Computation Server is needed. This memo proposes to use COPS as a base protocol for that task.
