This document provides an applicability statement on the use of
Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS) protocols and
mechanisms to support Basic Mode Layer 1 Virtual Private Networks

L1VPNs provide customer services and connectivity at Layer 1 over
Layer 1 networks.  The operation of L1VPNs is divided into the Basic
Mode and the Enhanced Mode, where the Basic Mode of operation does not
feature any exchange of routing information between the Layer 1
network and the customer domain.  This document examines how GMPLS
protocols can be used to satisfy the requirements of a Basic Mode
L1VPN.  This memo provides information for the Internet community.

This document is a product of the Layer 1 Virtual Private Networks Working Group of the IETF.
