The Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) suite of
protocols has been defined to control different switching
technologies as well as different applications. These include support
for requesting Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) connections including
Synchronous Optical Network (SONET)/Synchronous Digital Hierarchy
(SDH) and Optical Transport Networks (OTNs).
This document concentrates on the routing requirements on the GMPLS
suite of protocols to support the capabilities and functionalities
for an Automatically Switched Optical Network (ASON) as defined by
Working Group Summary
This document is the product of a design team that included IETF and ITU
members. The goal of the document was to represent routing-related
requirements for ASON networks received from ITU in a liaison statement
in the form understandable for a usual IETF participant.
This document has been reviewed for IESG by Alex Zinin. Adrian Farrel
followed up with the WG on the provided comments.
This document required no specific IANA action.
