        Requirements for Abstraction and Control of TE Networks

                 draft-ietf-teas-actn-requirements-04.txt

Abstract

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

   ACTN refers to the set of virtual network operations needed to
   orchestrate, 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
   and network function virtualization services.

   These operations are summarized as follows:

     - Abstraction and coordination of underlying network resources
