Technical Summary This document provides an evaluation of Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) protocols and mechanisms against the requirements for Multi-Layer Networks (MLN) and Multi-Region Networks (MRN). In addition, this document identifies areas where additional protocol extensions or procedures are needed to satisfy these requirements, and provides guidelines for potential extensions. This document is closely related to draft-ietf-ccamp-gmpls-mln-reqs, which is on the same IESG telechat agenda. Working Group Summary No dissent reported. This document has had broad review. See PROTO writeup by Adrian Farrel for more details. Document Quality This is an evaluation of existing GMPLS mechanisms against the requirements described in draft-ietf-ccamp-gmpls-mln-reqs. There is related ongoing work in the CCAMP working group. Personnel Adrian Farrel is the Document Shepherd for this document. Ross Callon is the Responsible Area Director. There are no related IANA requirements (there is a null IANA section to make this clear).
