[RFC4655] defines the PCE-based architecture and explains how a Path Computation Element (PCE) may compute Label Switched Paths (LSPs) in networks controlled by Multiprotocol Label Switching Traffic Engineering (MPLS-TE) and Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) at the request of Path Computation Clients (PCCs). A PCC is shown to be any network component that makes such a request and may be, for instance, an optical switching element within a Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) network. The PCE itself can be located anywhere within the network; it may be within an optical switching element, a Network Management System (NMS), or an Operational Support System (OSS), or it may be an independent network server.

   Path Computation Element Communication Protocol (PCEP) Requirements              for Wavelength Switched Optical Network (WSON)                    Routing and Wavelength Assignment


   This memo provides application-specific requirements for the Path    Computation Element Communication Protocol (PCEP) for the support of    Wavelength Switched Optical Networks (WSONs).  Lightpath provisioning    in WSONs requires a Routing and Wavelength Assignment (RWA) process.    From a path computation perspective, wavelength assignment is the    process of determining which wavelength can be used on each hop of a    path and forms an additional routing constraint to optical light path    computation.  Requirements for PCEP extensions in support of optical    impairments will be addressed in a separate document.
