The emergence of transparent optical switches, together with a movement towards more dynamic, multi-vendor networks, has introduced a need for information sharing between optical line systems and client devices. The information that needs to be shared includes link status and link properties. We call this interface the Optical Link Interface (OLI). In this document, we provide high-level requirements for the OLI.
