Paper Abstract

This paper presents a multicasting extension to OIF User Network Interface (UNI) standard, which allows dynamically setup/teardown/graft/prune a transport network multicasting tree. Transport network multicasting tree means a point-to-multipoint connection that originates from an ingress Transport Network Element (TNE) port and end at multiple egress TNE ports across the transport network for transporting user services. A global multicasting tree ID is defined to identify the transport network multicasting tree. Without addition of any new abstract messages, we just add some new attributes to existing UNI abstract messages to implement the signaling actions needed to support optical multicasting. Experimental results show the performance of our proposal under different strategy.
