Title : Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) RSVP-TE Signalling in support
of Automatically Switched Optical Network (ASON)
Author(s) : J. Drake

This document specifies how Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) RSVP-TE
signaling may be used and extended to satisfy the requirements of
the Automatically Switched Optical Network (ASON) architecture
specified by the ITU-T. The requirements are in a companion document
'Requirements for Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) Usage and Extensions for
Automatically Switched Optical Network (ASON).'
In particular, this document details the mechanisms for setting up
Soft Permanent Connections (SPC), the necessary extensions in
delivering full and logical call/connection separation support, the
extended restart capabilities during control plane failures,
extended label usage and crankback signalling capability.
The mechanisms proposed in the present document are applicable to
any environment (including multi-area) and for any type of
interface: packet, layer-2, time-division multiplexed, lambda or

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
