A requirement for the development of a unified control plane for both optical/circuit and electronic/packet switching equipment is the support of data plane fault recovery. This paper describes the data path recovery mechanisms, i.e. protection and re-routing, defined as part of the GMPLS protocol suite (as defined by the IETF).
