This draft describes a generalized traffic engineering protocol (GTEP). GTEP is a protocol that communicates between a Path Computation Element (PCE) and a GMPLS controller (GMPLS CNTL). A GMPLS CNTL is a controller that handles GMPLS and MPLS protocols such as routing and signaling protocols and controls a GMPLS node. PCE provides a function of traffic engineer-ing, which calculates LSP routes and judges whether a new lower-layer LSP should be established and whether an existing lower-layer LSP should be released.
