            RSVP-TE Extension for Additional Signal Types in
                G.709 Optical Transport Networks (OTNs)

Abstract

   RFCs 4328 and 7139 provide signaling extensions in Resource
   ReserVation Protocol - Traffic Engineering (RSVP-TE) to control the
   full set of Optical Transport Network (OTN) features.  However, these
   specifications do not cover the additional Optical channel Data Unit
   (ODU) containers defined in G.Sup43 (ODU1e, ODU3e1, and ODU3e2).
   This document defines new Signal Types for these additional
   containers.

RFC 7963       RSVP-TE Ext for Signal Types in G.709 OTNs    August 2016

1.  Introduction

   [RFC7139] updates the portions of text related to the Optical channel
   Data Unit (ODU) described in [RFC4328] to provide extensions to
   Resource ReserVation Protocol - Traffic Engineering (RSVP-TE) to
   support control for [G.709-v3] in the OTN-TDM SENDER_TSPEC and OTN-
   TDM FLOWSPEC objects.  However, it does not specify Signal Types for
   the ODU1e, ODU3e1, and ODU3e2 containers defined in [G.Sup43].  This
   document provides RSVP-TE signaling extensions to support these
   additional Signal Types.

   These containers are non-standard data-plane frame formats (not
   defined in ITU-T Recommendations).  They are among some of the intra-
   domain approaches used in networks to transport 10GBASE-R signals in
   optical transport networks.  As a supplement, [G.Sup43] does not
   guarantee interoperability in the data plane for these containers.
