Abstract 

   The Path Computation Element (PCE) facilitates Traffic Engineering 
   (TE) based path calculation in large, multi-domain, multi-region, or 
   multi-layer networks. The PCE communication Protocol (PCEP) has been 
   extended to support stateful PCE functions where the PCE retains 
   information about the paths already present in the network, but 
   those extensions are technology-agnostic. This memo provides 
   extensions required for PCEP so as to enable the usage of a stateful 
   PCE capability in GMPLS-controlled networks. 

Status of this Memo 

   This Internet-Draft is submitted to IETF in full conformance with   
   the provisions of BCP 78 and BCP 79.
