Body
The CCAMP Working Group thanks Q12/15 and Q14/15 for their liaison on ASON
Related Work addressed to the PCE Working Group. We welcome continued
cooperation and exchange of ideas with SG15 on control plane issues
related to GMPLS and ASON.

Routing.
As you note, work has started to address the specific requirements of ASON
routing that are not already met by existing protocol specifications as
identified by draft-ietf-ccamp-gmpls-ason-routing-eval-02.txt. A new draft
(draft-dimitri-ccamp-ason-routing-sol-00.txt) captures some of the new work
and CCAMP welcomes your support for its general direction. As this draft
develops it will be merged, as appropriate, with any other proposals brought
to our attention and a working group draft will be produced. We will be sure
to liaise this to you when it is sufficiently stable.

Signaling
We welcome your interest in collaboratively exploring any opportunities for
convergence of signaling solutions, and we will be sure to liaise to you any
future signaling working group drafts specific to ASON as soon as they are
sufficiently stable.

Regards,
Adrian Farrel and Kireeti Kompella
