       OSPF-TE Extensions for General Network Element Constraints

Abstract

   Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS) can be used to
   control a wide variety of technologies including packet switching
   (e.g., MPLS), time division (e.g., Synchronous Optical Network /
   Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SONET/SDH) and Optical Transport
   Network (OTN)), wavelength (lambdas), and spatial switching (e.g.,
   incoming port or fiber to outgoing port or fiber).  In some of these
   technologies, network elements and links may impose additional
   routing constraints such as asymmetric switch connectivity, non-
   local label assignment, and label range limitations on links.  This
   document describes Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) routing protocol
   extensions to support these kinds of constraints under the control of
   GMPLS.
