1.  Introduction

   Generalised Multiprotocol Label Switched (GMPLS) is widely used in
   Wavelength Switched Optical Network (WSON) to support the optical
   circuits set-up through the signalling between Core Nodes and Edge
   Nodes.  This extension addresses the use cases described by [RFC7698]
   Ch.3.3 and supports the information, needed by Spectrum Switched
   Optical Network (SSON), to signal a Media Channel and the associated
   carriers set request.  The new set of parameters is related to the
   Media Channel and the carrier routed with it and keep the backward
   compatibility with the WSON signalling.  In particular this memo
   wants do address the use cases where the SSON LSP (the Media Channel
   in RFC7698) carries multiple carrier (OTSi) containing same Payload.
   The set of the carriers can be seen as single Logical circuit.  This
   memo can be considered as the extension of [RFC7699] The contents and

   the parameters reflect the experimental activity on IP over SSON
   recently done.

   Figure 1 shows how the multiple carrier are mapped into a Media
   Channel.  A set of parameters must be shared on the UNI to allow the
   GMPLS to do the proper routing and Spectrum Assignment and decide the
   carrier position.

   When the E.N. wants to request to the C.N. a new circuit set-up
   request or the GMPLS want to signal in the SSON network the Optical
   Interface characteristics the following parameters will be provided
   to the C.N.:

   Number of available subcarriers (c):

4.2.  Extension to LSP set-up reservation

   Once the GMPLS has calculated the Media Channel path, the Spectrum
   Allocation, the Sub-carrier number and frequency, the modulation
   format, the FEC and the Transmit power, sends back to the E.N. the
   path set-up confirmation providing the values of the calculated
   paramenters:

   Number of subcarriers:
      This parameter indicates the number of subcarriers available for
      the super-channel in case the Transceiver can support multiple
      carrier Circuits.

   Central frequency granularity:
      This parameter indicates the Central frequency granularity

      value to calculate the central frequency on the carrier or sub-
      carriers.

   Minimum channel spacing:

      between two adjacent channels (or carriers) depending on the
      Transceiver characteristics.

4.3.  RSVP Protocol Extensions considerations

   The additional information described in the draft, is related to the
   Media Channel supported traffic.  It could be encoded as specific
   extensions of the SENDER_TSPEC/FLOW_SPEC object for Flexi-Grid
   networks (see [RFC7792])

5.  Security Considerations

   GMPLS message security uses IPsec, as described in xxxx.  This
   document only defines new UNI objects that are carried in existing
   UNI messages, similar to the UNI objects in xxx.  This document does
   not introduce new security considerations.
