IANA has defined an "OTN Signal Type" subregistry to the
"Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) Signaling
Parameters" registry. This draft proposes changes to the OTN Signal
Type subregistry to include Specification Required policies, as
defined in [RFC5226].

1. Introduction

   [RFC4328] and [RFC7139] provide the extensions to the
   Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) signaling to
   control the full set of OTN features including ODU0, ODU1, ODU2,
   ODU3, ODU4, ODU2e and ODUflex. However, it does not cover
   additional signal types mentioned in [G.Sup43] (ODU1e, ODU3e1,
   and ODU3e2). As ODU1e, ODU3e1, and ODU3e2 signal types are only
   defined in an ITU-T supplementary document, IANA cannot allocate
   values from the Standards Action registration policy defined in

   IANA maintains "OTN Signal Type" subregistry to the "Generalized
   Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) Signaling Parameters"
   registry for the OTN signal defined in [RFC4328] and [RFC7139].
   However, this subregistry currently is defined to only use the
   Standards Action registration policy as defined by [RFC5226].
   This document extends "OTN Signal Type" subregistry to also

   support Specification Required policies, as defined in

2. IANA Considerations

   IANA maintains the an "OTN Signal Type" subregistry to the
   "Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) Signaling
   Parameters" registry. The registry currently is defined to use
   the Standards Action registration policy as defined by
   [RFC5226]. This document directs that both Standards Action and
   IETF Review policies, as defined in [RFC5226], be applied to
   this subregistry. When needed, the Designated Expert shall be
   identified by a CCAMP WG chair or, in the case the group is no
   longer active, by the IESG.
