GMPLS RSVP-TE recovery extensions are specified in [RFC4872] and [RFC4873]. Currently recovery signalling does not support the request for revertive protection, neither the configuration of recovery timers. This document extends the PROTECTION Object format allowing sub-TLVs, and defines two sub-TLVs to carry wait-to-restore and hold-off intervals.Requirements Language The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in
