Abstract 
 
   ITU-T Recommendation G.709 [G709-2012] has introduced new Optical 
   channel Data Unit (ODU) containers (ODU0, ODU4, ODU2e and ODUflex)

   and enhanced Optical Transport Networking (OTN) flexibility.  

   This document updates the ODU-related portions of RFC4328 to
   to provide the extensions to the Generalized Multi-Protocol Label 
   Switching (GMPLS) signaling to control the full set of OTN features
   including ODU0, ODU4, ODU2e and ODUflex.
