[RFC7139] updates the portions of text related to the Optical channel Data Unit (ODU) described in [RFC4328] to provide extensions to Resource ReserVation Protocol - Traffic Engineering (RSVP-TE) to support control for [G.709-v3] in the OTN-TDM SENDER_TSPEC and OTN- TDM FLOWSPEC objects. However, it does not specify Signal Types for the ODU1e, ODU3e1, and ODU3e2 containers defined in [G.Sup43]. This document provides RSVP-TE signaling extensions to support these additional Signal Types.

             RSVP-TE Extension for Additional Signal Types in                 G.709 Optical Transport Networks (OTNs)


   RFCs 4328 and 7139 provide signaling extensions in Resource    ReserVation Protocol - Traffic Engineering (RSVP-TE) to control the    full set of Optical Transport Network (OTN) features.  However, these    specifications do not cover the additional Optical channel Data Unit    (ODU) containers defined in G.Sup43 (ODU1e, ODU3e1, and ODU3e2).    This document defines new Signal Types for these additional    containers.
