1.  Introduction

   Network operators build and operate multi-layered multi-domain
   networks and these domains may be technology, administrative or
   vendor specific (vendor islands).  Interoperability for dealing with
   different domains is a perpetual problem for operators.  Due to these
   issues, new service introduction, often requiring connections that
   traverse multiple domains, need significant planning, and several
   manual operations to interface different vendor equipment and
   technology accross IP and Optical layers.

   The aim of Abstraction and Control of Transport Networks (ACTN) is to
   facilitate virtual network operation, creation of a virtualized
   environment allowing operators to view and control multi-subnet
