GMPLS routing [RFC4203] [RFC5307] and signaling [RFC3473] [RFC4328] provide the mechanisms for basic GMPLS control of Optical Transport Networks (OTNs) based on the 2001 revision of the G.709 specification [G.709-2001]. The 2012 revision of the G.709 specification [G.709-2012] includes new OTN features that are not supported by GMPLS.

                  Evaluation of Existing GMPLS Encoding            against G.709v3 Optical Transport Networks (OTNs)


   ITU-T recommendation G.709-2012 has introduced new fixed and flexible    Optical channel Data Unit (ODU) containers in Optical Transport    Networks (OTNs).

   This document provides an evaluation of existing Generalized    Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS) routing and signaling protocols    against the G.709 OTNs.
