        Requirements for Abstraction and Control of TE Networks

                   draft-ietf-teas-actn-requirements-09

Abstract

   This document provides a set of functional requirements for
   abstraction and control of Traffic Engineering networks to
   facilitate virtual network operation via the creation of a single
   virtualized network or a seamless service. This supports operators
   in viewing and controlling different domains (at any dimension:
   applied technology, administrative zones, or vendor-specific
   technology islands) as a single virtualized network.

1. Introduction

   This document provides a set of functional requirements for
   Abstraction and Control of Traffic Engineering (TE) Networks (ACTN)
   identified in various use-cases specified by the operators. [ACTN-
   Frame] defines the base reference architecture and terminology.

   ACTN refers to the set of virtual network service operations needed
   to coordinate, control and manage large-scale multi-domain TE
   networks so as to facilitate network programmability, automation,
   efficient resource sharing, and end-to-end virtual service aware
   connectivity.

   These operations are summarized as follows:

     - Abstraction and coordination of underlying network resources
