   This document defines a framework and the associated control plane
   requirements for the GMPLS based control of flexi-grid DWDM networks.
   To allow efficient allocation of optical spectral bandwidth for high
   bit-rate systems, the International Telecommunication Union
   Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T) has extended the
   recommendations [G.694.1] and [G.872] to include the concept of
   flexible grid.  A new DWDM grid has been developed within the ITU-T
   Study Group 15 by defining a set of nominal central frequencies,
   channel spacings and the concept of "frequency slot".  In such
   environment, a data plane connection is switched based on allocated,
   variable-sized frequency ranges within the optical spectrum.
