Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) is applicable to Ethernet switches supporting Provider Backbone Bridge Traffic Engineering (PBB-TE) networks. The GMPLS controlled Ethernet label switch network not only automates creation of Ethernet Label Switched Paths(Eth-LSPs), it also provides sophisticated Eth-LSP recovery Mechanisms such as protection and restoration of an Eth-LSP. This document describes the requirements for the set of solutions of GMPLS controlled Ethernet label switch networks.
