          Controlling pre-standard coherent Optical Interfaces
                 draft-many-coherent-dwdm-if-control-01

Abstract

   Modulated optical interfaces with coherent detection receivers are in
   widespread use in Internet networking equipment.  Various
   implementations are in deployment since 2012 but there is no standard
   available defining those interfaces, nor their capabilities.  This
   document identifies the need for work on control plane aspects pre-
   standard coherent optical DWDM applications.

1.  Introduction

   The dominant interconnection technology in the Internet is based on
   fiber and optical transceiver interfaces.  Multiple SDOs are working
   on control-plane and data-plane standards in this field.  Some are
   covering LAN applications (IEEE), while others work on WAN and in
   particular DWDM based applications (ITU-T SG15).  Those DWDM related
   recommendations are based on non-coherent detection schemes and do
   not cover modulated optical suignals and coherent detection.  DWDM
   wavelengths of 40Gb/s, 100Gb/s and beyond use higher order modulation
