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. Protocol Quality This document was reviewed for teh IESG by Bert Wijnen 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.
