  GMPLS OSPF Enhancement for Signal and Network Element Compatibility
                for Wavelength Switched Optical Networks

Abstract

   This document provides Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching
   (GMPLS) Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) routing enhancements to
   support signal compatibility constraints associated with Wavelength
   Switched Optical Network (WSON) elements.  These routing enhancements
   are applicable in common optical or hybrid electro-optical networks
   where not all the optical signals in the network are compatible with
   all network elements participating in the network.

   This compatibility constraint model is applicable to common optical
   or hybrid electro-optical systems such as optical-electronic-optical
   (OEO) switches, regenerators, and wavelength converters, since such
   systems can be limited to processing only certain types of WSON
   signals.

1.  Introduction

   The documents [RFC6163], [RFC7446], and [RFC7581] explain how to
   extend the Wavelength Switched Optical Network (WSON) control plane
   to support both multiple WSON signal types and common hybrid electro-
   optical systems as well hybrid systems containing optical switching
