Technical Summary

  This document provides a framework for applying GMPLS protocols and
  the PCE architecture to support Impairment Aware Routing and
  Wavelength Assignment (IA-RWA) in wavelength switched optical
  networks. This document does not define optical data plane aspects;
  impairment parameters, measurement of, or assessment and
  qualification of a route, but rather it describes the architectural
  and information components for protocol solutions.

Working Group Summary

  Nothing unusual in the WG process. 
  The document is considered to be both stable and complete.

Document Quality

  This document is an informational framework with nothing to implement.
  There are a number of drafts being progressed that address various 
  aspects of the framework.
