Response to the ITU-T SG 15 Liaison Statement on ASON Routing
Dear Mr. Lam,
Regarding the following Liaison sent to the CCAMP WG, IETF:
INTERNATIONAL TELECOMMUNICATION UNION COM 15 - LS 39 - E
TELECOMMUNICATION STANDARDIZATION SECTOR STUDY PERIOD 2001-2004
Question(s): 12, 14/15 20-31 January 2003
Source: ITU-T SG15, Q.14/15
Title: Liaison Statement To IETF CCAMP WG and Sub-IP Area Directors
From WP3/15 on ASON Routing Activities
To: IETF CCAMP WG and Sub-IP Area Directors
cc: OSPF and ISIS Working Groups
Approval: Agreed to at SG 15 meeting, Geneva, 20-31 January 2003
Contact: Hing-Kam Lam, Lucent Technologies, USA
Tel: +1 732-949-8338
Fax: +1 732-949-5055
The CCAMP WG has formulated its reply, which follows. Please forward
this reply as you see fit as Rapporteur for Q.14/15.
> Q.14/15 would like to inform the IETF CCAMP Working Group and the Sub-IP
> Area Directors that Q.14/15 is beginning work in defining the connection
> routing protocols for use in ASON networks, and requests the benefit of
> the IETF's expertise in this area.
The IETF CCAMP WG would be glad to help.

It is our expectation that the link-state routing paradigm that is being
progressed at the IETF in the CCAMP WG in conjunction with the OSPF and
ISIS WGs, will be seen to meet the above requirements. Some of this has
not been articulated as well as it should be; we are addressing this.

That is an excellent goal. We would be glad to work with you to achieve
this; similar work is already under way for signaling and protection &
> An interim meeting of Q.14/15 will be held on 9-13 June 2003, located in

Thank you for the invitation. Several interested participants from the
CCAMP WG are making arrangments to attend; if at all possible, the
chairs of the CCAMP WG will attend as well. In particular, we plan to
make a presentation stating how the proposed link-state routing structure
in the IETF addresses the requirements for ASON networks.

Thank you for making this available.
