Operation of a Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) traffic
engineering (TE) network as a client network to a Generalized MPLS
(GMPLS) network has enhanced operational capabilities compared to
those provided by a coexistent protocol model (i.e., operation of
MPLS-TE over an independently managed transport layer).

The GMPLS network may be a packet or a non-packet network, and may
itself be a multi-layer network supporting both packet and non-packet
technologies.  An MPLS-TE Label Switched Path (LSP) originates and
terminates on an MPLS Label Switching Router (LSR).  The GMPLS network
provides transparent transport for the end-to-end MPLS-TE LSP.

This document describes a framework and Service Provider requirements
for operating MPLS-TE networks over GMPLS networks.  This memo provides information for the Internet community.

This document is a product of the Common Control and Measurement Plane Working Group of the IETF.
