The GMPLS protocols (Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching) are the protocols used by Internet Service Providers and carriers to enable the implementation of a unified and agile control plane over their heterogeneous networks. Thus, with this new concept, it can handle the optical, the aggregation and the overall packet layers.
Operation of GMPLS protocols
Full control facilities of IP/MPLS packet networks require the use of MPLS control plane. Those protocols are particularly used for WAN IP networks. The GMPLS protocols were developed to extend the operation of MPLS. More efficient, this protocol can support multiple types of switching capabilities, the packet handled by the IP/MPLS and PBB-TE, time slots switching, port switching and optical wavelength switching.
To this end, the GMPLS protocols allow among others to compute bidirectional paths, to establish and manage optical circuits. In addition, those protocols enable additional optical services. This is the automatic reconfiguration of network traffic as required, the dynamic management of the wavelength, the automatic restoration of optical transmission or the dynamic optical VPN.
