                 Framework for GMPLS and PCE Control of
                    G.709 Optical Transport Networks

Abstract

   This document provides a framework to allow the development of
   protocol extensions to support Generalized Multi-Protocol Label
   Switching (GMPLS) and Path Computation Element (PCE) control of
   Optical Transport Networks (OTNs) as specified in ITU-T
   Recommendation G.709 as published in 2012.
