In order to compute and provide optimal paths, Path Computation Elements (PCEs) require an accurate and timely Traffic Engineering Database (TED). Traditionally this Link State and TE information has been obtained from a link state routing protocol (supporting traffic engineering extensions). This document provides possible architectural alternatives for link- state and TE information distribution and their potential impacts on PCE, network nodes, routing protocols etc.
