Generalized-MPLS (GMPLS) extends the MPLS control plane to encompass
time-division, wavelength and spatial switching. A functional
description of the extensions to MPLS signaling needed to support
the new types of switching is provided in [GMPLS-SIG]. Along with
the current development of IP over optical switching, there are
considerable developments in optical transport systems based on the
multiple optical switching granularities. [GMPLS-SIG] currently
defines two layers of optical granularity (wavelength and fiber). As
described in [IPO-MG], a revisited definition of waveband switching
must be introduced. This document presents a functional description
of the extensions, to the GMPLS protocol suite, to integrate the
additional requirements of optical multi-granularity and to further
benefit from the features of those switching layers.

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.
