A suite of protocols is being developed in the IETF to allow networks consisting of photonic switches (PXCs), optical crossconnects (OXCs), routers, switches, DWDM optical line systems (OLSs), and optical add-drop multiplexors (OADMs) to use an MPLS- based control plane to dynamically provision resources and to provide network survivability using protection and restoration techniques.
