  Path Computation Element Communication Protocol (PCEP) Requirements
             for Wavelength Switched Optical Network (WSON)
                   Routing and Wavelength Assignment

Abstract

   This memo provides application-specific requirements for the Path
   Computation Element Communication Protocol (PCEP) for the support of
   Wavelength Switched Optical Networks (WSONs).  Lightpath provisioning
   in WSONs requires a Routing and Wavelength Assignment (RWA) process.
   From a path computation perspective, wavelength assignment is the
   process of determining which wavelength can be used on each hop of a
   path and forms an additional routing constraint to optical light path
   computation.  Requirements for PCEP extensions in support of optical
   impairments will be addressed in a separate document.
