Establishment and control of Label Switch Paths (LSPs) have become
mainstream tools of commercial and government network providers.
One of the elements of further evolving such networks is scaling their
performance in terms of LSP bandwidth and traffic loads, LSP intensity
(e.g., rate of LSP creation, deletion, and modification), LSP set up delay,
quality of service differentiation, and different levels of resilience.
The goal of this document is to present target scaling objectives and the
related protocol requirements for Generalized Multi-Protocol Label
Working Group Summary
This document moved from the CCAMP WG to TEAS WG as part of the
routing WG changes. The progress of the draft through the WG
(first CCAMP, then TEAS) has been smooth.
The base GMPLS signaling and routing protocols have been implemented.
The requirements put forth in this document may be the basis for future
documents, some of which may be simply informational, while others may
describe specific GMPLS protocol extensions. While some of these
requirements may be have implications on implementations, the intent is
for the requirements to apply to GMPLS protocols and their standardized
