           GMPLS OSPF-TE Extensions in Support of Flexi-Grid
         Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) Networks

Abstract

   The International Telecommunication Union Telecommunication
   standardization sector (ITU-T) has extended its Recommendations
   G.694.1 and G.872 to include a new Dense Wavelength Division
   Multiplexing (DWDM) grid by defining channel spacings, a set of
   nominal central frequencies, and the concept of the "frequency slot".
   Corresponding techniques for data-plane connections are known as
   "flexi-grid".

   Based on the characteristics of flexi-grid defined in G.694.1 and in
   RFCs 7698 and 7699, this document describes the Open Shortest Path
   First - Traffic Engineering (OSPF-TE) extensions in support of GMPLS
   control of networks that include devices that use the new flexible
   optical grid.
