Body:
The CCAMP working group is pleased to inform you of the publication of
RFC 4258: "Requirements for Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching
(GMPLS) Routing for the Automatically Switched Optical Network (ASON)"

The abstract of this RFC is as follows.

   The Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching 
   (GMPLS) suite of protocols has been defined to 
   control different switching technologies as well
   as different applications.  These include support
   for requesting Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) 
   connections including Synchronous Optical Network
   (SONET)/Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) and 
   Optical Transport Networks (OTNs).

   This document concentrates on the routing 
   requirements placed on the GMPLS suite of
   protocols in order to support the capabilities
   and functionalities of an Automatically Switched 
   Optical Network (ASON) as defined by the ITU-T.

The CCAMP working group is indebted to several members of the ITU-T
SG15 community who played a significant part in the authorship of this
RFC, and to Question 14/15 which provided important review feedback to
ensure that this document accurately reflects the nature and
requirements of routing in an ASON environment.
