GMPLS  has now been proposed as an extension to the MPLS
framework to include non packet-switched optical technologies, such
as time-division multiplexing (PDH/SDH/SONET) and wavelength
division multiplexing (lambdas/fibers). This draft proposes an
enhanced label request format for such optical technologies, which
accounts for some special characteristics of these technologies
(see, for instance, , , )that differentiate them from
packet-switched technologies. When enumerating our encoding, we
focus, for clarity, on optical TDM technologies, since the standards
for these are well-defined, but it will be seen that the proposal
has very general applicability.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.

implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
