Each carrier has its own solutions to manage its network. One can use a basic planning tool with a static traffic engineering or used standard protocols such as OSPF-TE to enable a dynamic control of its networks.
Features of OSPF-TE
Open Shortest Path First-Traffic Engineering or OSPF-TE is a control plane protocol used by transport carriers to manage their packet MPLS or MPLS-TP based networks or their optical network. OSPF-TE is an extension of OSPF, it runs also on TCP/IP on the signaling control network. OSFP-TE is in charge to advertise the traffic engineering information among all the nodes that are part of the same administrative domain. Any change of bandwidth availability or any link failure or disruption is instantly shared between all the nodes in order to manage the network with a fine and accurate information. It is applicable on any transport technologies from the optical fiber cross-switch, the OTN switch or the MPLS-TP/ PBB-TE networks. OSPF-TE is the most common IGP protocol in telecommunication networks. It also helps develop a QOS based plan for routing information in Internet networks.
Marben solutions for OSPF-TE
