The impairment validation of the light path in a Wavelength Switched Optical Network (WSON) can be implemented with a distributed hop by hop process by signaling protocol. This memo proposes feedback control of some parameters related to impairment evaluation results with the extensions to the Resource Reservation Traffic Engineering (RSVP-TE) signaling protocol in order to establish an optical path with a higher probability.
