There are specific requirements for the support of networks
comprising Label Switching Routers (LSRs) participating in
different data plane switching layers controlled by a single
Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) control
plane instance, referred to as GMPLS Multi-Layer Networks /
Multi-Region Networks (MLN/MRN).

This document defines extensions to GMPLS routing and signaling
protocols so as to support the operation of GMPLS Multi-Layer /
Multi-Region Networks.  It covers the elements of a single GMPLS
control plane instance controlling multiple Label Switched Path (LSP)
regions or layers within a single Traffic Engineering (TE) domain.

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

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
