Abstract 

   The Path Computation Element (PCE) provides path computation 
   functions in support of traffic engineering in Multiprotocol Label 
   Switching (MPLS) and Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) networks. 

   MPLS and GMPLS networks may be constructed from layered service 
   networks. It is advantageous for overall network efficiency to 
   provide end-to-end traffic engineering across multiple network layers 
   through a process called inter-layer traffic engineering. PCE is a 
   candidate solution for such requirements. 

   The PCE communication Protocol (PCEP) is designed as a communication 
   protocol between Path Computation Clients (PCCs) and PCEs. This 
   document presents PCEP extensions for inter-layer traffic engineering.
