	Title		: Requirements for Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) Usage and 
                          Extensions for Automatically Switched Optical Network
                          (ASON)

The Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) suite of protocol has been defined to
control different switching technologies as well as different
applications. These include support for requesting TDM connections
including SONET/SDH and Optical Transport Networks (OTNs).
This document concentrates on the signaling aspects of the GMPLS
suite of protocols. It identifies the features to be covered by the
signalling protocol to support the capabilities of an Automatically
Switched Optical Network (ASON). This document provides a problem
statement and additional requirements on the GMPLS signaling
protocol to support the ASON functionality.

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.
