>From a carrier perspective, the possibility of turning a permanent
connection (PC) into a soft permanent connection (SPC) and vice
versa, without actually affecting data plane traffic being carried
over it, is a valuable option. In other terms, such operation can be
seen as a way of transferring the ownership and control of an
existing and in-use data plane connection between the management
plane and the control plane, leaving its data plane state untouched.
This memo sets out the requirements for such procedures within a
Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS) network. This
memo provides information for the Internet community.
