Generalized MPLS is now being increasingly used in high performance optical networks. It facilitates bandwidth-demanding applications to invoke bandwidth provisioning in an on-demand fashion. However, by far the provisioning performance of GMPLS networks is under-explored. This paper introduces the ongoing standardization efforts and our testing experiences for GMPLS provisioning performance.
