Technical Summary
 
  The Link Management Protocol (LMP) is defined to manage traffic
  engineering (TE) links. In its present form, LMP focuses on peer
  nodes; i.e., nodes that peer in signaling and/or routing. In this
  document we propose extensions to LMP to allow it to be used between
  a peer node and an adjacent optical line system (OLS). These
  extensions are intended to satisfy the "Optical Link Interface
  Requirements" described in a companion document.
 
Working Group Summary
 
  The Working Group has consensus to publish this document as a Proposed
  Standard.  There were no comments from IETF Last Call.

RFC-Editor note:

Please insert at the beginning of sect 2.4 the following para:

  The Fault Management procedure used between a peer and an OLS follows
  the procedures described in [LMP]; some further extensions are defined
  in this section.  The information learned from the OLS-peer fault
  management procedures may be used to trigger peer-peer LMP fault
  management, or may be used to trigger GMPLS signaling/routing
  procedures directly.
