Wson signaling extensions

WSON Signaling Extensions

  • Provide extensions to Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) signaling for control of Wavelength Switched Optical Networks (WSON).

    Changes from 02:

  • Added requirements for support of distributed wavelength assignment applications/optimizations.

  • Generalized Wavelength Set Metric TLV for additional use scenarios/applications.

  • Added explanatory text on three new applications/optimizations.


New wson signaling requirements

New WSON Signaling Requirements

  • Distributed Wavelength Assignment Support:

    • Backward Blocking Reduction

      In WSON without wavelength converters, backward blocking due to resource contentions is the predominant blocking contribution, when traffic load is low or highly-dynamic as when lightpath restoration takes place [Giorgetti08].

    • Efficient Wavelength Converter Assignment

      When a WSON has some nodes with wavelength converters the efficient use of these scarce resources is desired [Andriolli06].

    • Shared Mesh Wavelength Assignment

      The reuse of protection bandwidth is desirable in some applications. In WSONs we need to consider wavelength selection in this process [Ji].

Next steps

Next Steps

  • Adopt as a WG document 

  • Work to finalize signal characterization

    • (working with ITU-T on this)

  • Assess demand for distributed bidirectional lightpath assignment using different wavelengths on different directions.

  • Revise encodings as necessary
