Abstract

Some data-plane technologies that require the use of a GMPLS control plane impose additional constraints on switching capability and label assignment. In addition, some of these technologies should be capable of performing non-local label assignment based on the nature of the technology, e.g., wavelength continuity constraint in Wavelength Switched Optical Networks (WSONs) [RFC6163]. Such constraints can lead to the requirement for link-by-link label availability in path computation and label assignment.

        OSPF-TE Extensions for General Network Element Constraints

Abstract

   Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS) can be used to    control a wide variety of technologies including packet switching    (e.g., MPLS), time division (e.g., Synchronous Optical Network /    Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SONET/SDH) and Optical Transport    Network (OTN)), wavelength (lambdas), and spatial switching (e.g.,    incoming port or fiber to outgoing port or fiber).  In some of these    technologies, network elements and links may impose additional    routing constraints such as asymmetric switch connectivity, non-    local label assignment, and label range limitations on links.  This    document describes Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) routing protocol    extensions to support these kinds of constraints under the control of    GMPLS.
