Document Action: 'Requirements for Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) Signaling Usage and Extensions for Automatically Switched Optical Network (ASON)' to Informational RFC
The IESG has approved the following document:
- 'Requirements for Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) Signaling Usage and Extensions
for Automatically Switched Optical Network (ASON) '
<draft-ietf-ccamp-gmpls-ason-reqts-07.txt> as an Informational RFC
This document is the product of the Common Control and Measurement Plane
The IESG contact persons are Alex Zinin and Bill Fenner.
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 signaling aspects of the GMPLS
suite of protocols. It identifies the features to be covered by the
GMPLS signaling protocol to support the capabilities of an
Automatically Switched Optical Network (ASON). This document provides
a problem statement and additional requirements on the GMPLS
signaling protocol to support the ASON functionality.
Working Group Summary
This document is the product of a design team that included IETF and ITU
members. The goal of the document was to represent requirements for ASON
networks received from ITU in a liaison statement in the form understandable
for a usual IETF participant.
This document has been reviewed for IESG by Alex Zinin. Adrian Farrel
followed up with the WG on the provided comments.
This document makes no request of and places no requirements
