GMPLS is a generalized form of MPLS (MultiProtocol Label Switching). MPLS is IP packet based and it uses MPLS-TE for Packet Traffic Engineering. GMPLS is extension to MPLS capabilities. It provides separation between transmission, control and management plane and network management. Control plane allows various applications like traffic engineering, service provisioning, and differentiated services. GMPLS control plane architecture includes signaling (RSVP-TE, CR-LDP) and routing (OSPF-TE, ISIS-TE) protocols. This paper provides an overview of the signaling protocols, describes their main functionalities, and provides a general evaluation of both the protocols.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
