Title : Protection Scheme for Optical Channel Concatenation
Author(s) : Y. Lee et al.
Filename : draft-ylee-protection-occ-00.txt
Pages : 7
Date : 26-Jun-01
This paper provides a framework for a protection scheme in the context
of optical channel concatenation (OCC). The need and requirements for
optical channel concatenation is addressed in a separate IETF draft,
draft-damle-optical-channel-concatenation-00.txt,which has been
submitted concurrently. This paper bascially provides mechanisms for
faster failure detection and propagation of failure for concatenated
optical channels. Standard-based MPLS protection schemes can be
employed for the actual rerouting of traffic utilizing the detection
and propagation mechanisms demonstrated in this paper.

exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with

up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
