This document describes two technology-independent extensions to
Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS).  The first extension
defines the new switching type Data Channel Switching Capable.
Data Channel Switching Capable interfaces are able to support
switching of the whole digital channel presented on single channel
interfaces.  The second extension defines a new type of
generalized label and updates related objects.  The new label is
called the Generalized Channel_Set Label and allows more than one
data plane label to be controlled as part of a Label Switched Path (LSP).

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

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.
