Reshad, Juergen,

Actually, there is some on-going discussion within TEAS because some packet technology-specific YANG modules are not using the bandwidth-ieee-float32 but prefers using some uint type:

https://github.com/tsaad-dev/te/issues/116

The ietf-te-packet-types already defines bandwidth-kbps, bandwidth-mbps and bandwidth-gbps but during the discussion of this open issue it was pointed out that it would be desirable to specify both the bandwidth and the units (Kbps/Mbps/Gbps)
