Real-time optical path setup is a fundamental requirement for agile optical networks and signaling is a mechanism to achieve automatic fast path setup. Our objective is to define extensions to both CR- LDP and RSVP-TE that address this requirement. CR-LDP and RSVP-TE are defined in [CR-LDP] and [RSVP], respectively, for path setup within a MPLS domain. In this draft, we specify mechanisms, TLVs and Objects required to support Optical Label Switched Path setup.
