Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) extends the MPLS control plane to encompass
layer 2, 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 [RFC-3471]. On the
other hand, along with the current development on IP over optical
switching, considerable advances in optical transport systems based
on the multiple optical switching granularities have been developed.
[RFC-3471] currently defines two layers of optical granularity using
wavelengths and fibers. By introducing an extended definition of
waveband switching, this document specifies the corresponding GMPLS
extensions, to further integrate optical multi-granularity and
benefit from the features of the corresponding 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.
