Technical Summary This memo describes the relationship of the LMP procedures to 'discovery' as defined in the International Telecommunication Union (ITU-T), and on-going ITU-T work. This document provides an overview of LMP in the context of the ITU-T Automatically Switched Optical Networks (ASON) and transport network terminology and relates it to the ITU-T discovery work to promote a common understanding for progressing the work of IETF and ITU-T. Working Group Summary The document has been reviewed by the WG, as well as ITU-T SG15, comments have been addressed. The WG had consensus on progressing this document. Protocol Quality Alex Zinin reviewed this document for the IESG. Note to RFC Editor Section 1. NEW TEXT. Insert immediately after heading. ITU-T Recommendation G.8080 Amendment 1 [G.8080] and ITU-T Recommendation G.7714 [G.7714] provide definitions and mechanisms related to transport plane discovery. Note that in the context of this work, "Transport" relates to the data plane (sometimes called the transport plane or the user plane) and does not refer to the transport layer (layer 4) of the OSI seven layer model, nor to concept of transport intended by protocols such as the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). Special care must be taken with the acronym "TCP" which within the context of the rest of this document means "Termination Connection Point" and does not indicate the Transmission Control Protocol.
