	Title           : Routing and Wavelength Assignment Information Encoding for Wavelength Switched Optical Networks

A wavelength switched optical network (WSON) requires that certain 
key information elements are made available to facilitate path 
computation and the establishment of label switching paths (LSPs). 
The information model described in "Routing and Wavelength Assignment 
Information for Wavelength Switched Optical Networks" shows what 
information is required at specific points in the WSON. 

The information may be used in Generalized Multiprotocol Label 
Switching (GMPLS) signaling protocols, and may be distributed by 
GMPLS routing protocols. Other distribution mechanisms (for example, 
XML-based protocols) may also be used. 

This document provides efficient, protocol-agnostic encodings for the 
information elements necessary to operate a WSON. It is intended that 
protocol-specific documents will reference this memo to describe how 
information is carried for specific uses.
