Supported GMPLS Standards
Junos OS substantially supports the following RFCs and Internet drafts, which define standards for Generalized MPLS (GMPLS).
RFC 3471, Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) Signaling Functional Description
Only the following features are supported:
Bidirectional LSPs (upstream label only)
Control channel separation
Generalized label (suggested label only)
Generalized label request (bandwidth encoding only)
RFC 3473, Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) Signaling Resource ReserVation Protocol-Traffic Engineering (RSVP-TE) Extensions
Only Section 9, “Fault Handling,” is supported.
RFC 4202, Routing Extensions in Support of Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching
Only interface switching is supported.
RFC 4206, Label Switched Paths (LSP) Hierarchy with Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) Traffic Engineering (TE)
Internet draft draft-ietf-ccamp-gmpls-rsvp-te-ason-02.txt, Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) RSVP-TE Signalling in support of Automatically Switched Optical Network (ASON) (expires January 2005)
Internet draft draft-ietf-ccamp-gmpls-sonet-sdh-08.txt, Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching Extensions for SONET and SDH Control
Only S,U,K,L,M-format labels and SONET traffic parameters are supported.
Internet draft draft-ietf-ccamp-lmp-10.txt, Link Management Protocol (LMP)
Internet draft draft-ietf-ccamp-ospf-gmpls-extensions-12.txt, OSPF Extensions in Support of Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching
The following sub-TLV types for the Link type, link, value (TLV) are not supported:
Link Local/Remote Identifiers (type 11)
Link Protection Type (type 14)
Shared Risk Link Group (SRLG) (type 16)
The features described in Section 2 of the draft, “Implications on Graceful Restart,” are also not supported.
The Interface Switching Capability Descriptor (type 15) sub-TLV type is implemented, but only for packet switching.
