This memo provides extending information for electro-optical multi- layer network under the control of Generalized MPLS(GMPLS). In particular we provide electro-optical conversion capability that describes the function between Optical Cross Connect(OXC) and Digital Cross Connect(DXC). The information of electro-optical conversion capability is used for extending multi-layer network(MLN) information model and Wavelength Switched Optical network(WSON) information model.
