This document provides a framework for applying Generalized Multi-Protocol
Label Switching (GMPLS) and the Path Computation Element
(PCE) architecture to the control of Wavelength Switched Optical
Networks (WSONs).  In particular, it examines Routing and Wavelength
Assignment (RWA) of optical paths.

This document focuses on topological elements and path selection
constraints that are common across different WSON environments; as
such, it does not address optical impairments in any depth.
This document is not an Internet Standards Track specification; it is
published for informational purposes.

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