Technical Summary

   This document describes Open Shortest Path First - Traffic
   Engineering (OSPF-TE) routing protocol extensions to support
   Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) control of Optical Transport Networks (OTN)
   specified in ITU-T Recommendation G.709 as published in 2012.  It
   extends mechanisms defined in RFC4203.

   This document is one of four informational and standards track documents
   going through the publication process as a set.
 
Working Group Summary

   There were many points of discussion, some more "intense" than
   others.  At this point there does not appear to be any notable
   discontent with the documented solution.
 
Document Quality

   The base GMPLS OSPF-TE mechanisms are implemented and deployed.
   Implementation status of the extensions defined in this document
   has not been publicly disclosed, but several implementations are
   expected.
