This report module examines the market for Gmpls applications. It specifically focuses on service provisioning and activation trouble-shooting and restoration, traffic engineering, resource management and capacity planning, voice support, value-added services and limitations and obstacles. Also included is a discussion of Gmpls standardization, Gmpls alternatives(such as Mpls, G.Astn, O-uni and O-nni and Pnni). Vendor standard endorsements and optical equipment segments (IP routers and ATM switches, digital cross connects and ADMs, Dwdm equipment, OXCs) are also examined. This report is absolutely necessary for anyone seeking an understanding of the Gmpls market and its key developments.
