GMPLS is designed as an out-of-band control plane supporting dynamic connection provisioning for any suitable data-plane technology, including spatial switching (e.g., incoming port or fiber to outgoing port or fiber); wavelength-division multiplexing (e.g., Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM)); time-division multiplexing (e.g., Synchronous Optical Networking and Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SONET/SDH), G.709); and Ethernet Provider Backbone Bridging - Traffic Engineering (PBB-TE) and MPLS. In most of these technologies, there are Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) functions employed to monitor the health and performance of the connections and to trigger data plane (DP) recovery mechanisms. Similar to connection provisioning, OAM functions follow general principles but also have some technology-specific characteristics.

GMPLS RSVP-TE Extensions for Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) Configuration
Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) is an integral part of transport connections; hence, it is required that OAM functions be activated/deactivated in sync with connection commissioning/ decommissioning, in order to avoid spurious alarms and ensure consistent operation. In certain technologies, OAM entities are inherently established once the connection is set up, while other technologies require extra configuration to establish and configure OAM entities. This document specifies extensions to Resource Reservation Protocol - Traffic Engineering (RSVP-TE) to support the establishment and configuration of OAM entities along with Label Switched Path signaling.
