Abstract

   To ensure an efficient data transport, meeting the requirements
   requested by today's IP-services the control and management of DWDM
   interfaces are a precondition for enhanced multilayer networking and
   for a further automation of network provisioning and operation.  This
   document describes use cases, requirements and solutions for the
   control and management of optical interfaces parameters according to
   different types of single channel DWDM interfaces.  The focus is on
   automating the network provisioning process irrespective on how it is
   triggered i.e. by EMS, NMS or GMPLS.  This document covers management
   as well as control plane considerations in different management cases
   of single channel DWDM interfaces.  The purpose is to identify the
   necessary information elements and processes to be used by control or
   management systems for further processing.

1.  Introduction

   The usage of the single channel DWDM interfaces (e.g. in routers)
   connected to a DWDM Network (which include ROADMs and optical
   amplifiers) adds a further networking option for operators allowing
   new scenarios but require harmonised control and management plane
   interaction between different network domains.

   Carriers deploy their networks today based on transport and packet
   network infrastructures as domains to ensure high availability and a
   high level of redundancy.  Both network domains were operated and
   managed separately.  This is the status quo in many carrier networks
   today.  In the case of deployments, where the optical transport
   interface moves into the client device (e.g. router) an interaction
   between those domains becomes necessary.

   This framework specifies different levels of control and management
   plane interaction to support the usage of single channel optical
   interfaces in carrier networks in an efficient manner.

   The objective of this document is to provide a framework for the
   control and management of transceiver interfaces based on the
   corresponding use cases and requirements to ensure an efficient and
   optimized data transport.

   Although Optical routing and wavelength assignment based on WSON is
   out of scope, they can benefit from the optical parameters that are
   exchanged between the Client and the DWDM Network.  Also, the
   wavelength ordering process and the process how to determine the
   demand for a new wavelength path through the network is out of scope.

   Note that the Control and Management Planes are two separate entities
   that are handling the same information in different ways.

1.1.  Requirements Language

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [RFC2119].

2.  Terminology and Definitions

   The current generation of WDM netwoks are single vendor networks
   where the optical line system and the transponders are tightly
   integrated.  The DWDM interface migration from the transponders to
   the colored interfaces change this scenario, by introducing a

   standardized interface at the level of OCh between the DWDM interface
   and the DWDM network.

   Black Link: The Black Link [ITU.G698.2] allows supporting an optical
   transmitter/receiver pair of a single vendor or from different
   vendors to provide a single optical channel interface and transport
   it over an optical network composed of amplifiers, filters, add-drop
   multiplexers which may be from a different vendor.  Therefore the
   standard defines the ingress and egress parameters for the optical
   interfaces at the reference points Ss and Rs.

   Single Channel DWDM Interface: The single channel interfaces to DWDM
   systems defined in G.698.2, which currently include the following
   features: channel frequency spacing: 50 GHz and wider (defined in
   [ITU-T G.694.1]); bit rate of single channel: Up to 10 Gbit/s.
   Future revisions are expected to include application codes for bit
   rates up to 40 Gb/s.

   Forward error correction (FEC): FEC is a way of improving the
   performance of high-capacity optical transmission systems.  Employing
   FEC in optical transmission systems yields system designs that can
   accept relatively large BER (much more than 10-12) in the optical
   transmission line (before decoding).

   Administrative domain [G.805]: the extent of resources which belong
   to a single player such as a network operator, a service provider or
   an end-user.  Administrative domains of different players do not
   overlap amongst themselves.

   Intra-domain interface (IaDI) [G.872]: A physical interface within an
   administrative domain.

   Inter-domain interface (IrDI) [G.872]: A physical interface that
   represents the boundary between two administrative domains.

   Management Plane [G.8081]: The management plane performs management
   functions for the transport plane, the control plane and the system
   as a whole.  It also provides coordination between all the planes.
   The following management functional areas are performed in the
   management plane: performance management, fault management,
   configuration management, accounting management and security
   management.

   Control Plane[G.8081]: The control plane performs neighbour
   discovery, call control and connection control functions.  Through
   signalling, the control plane sets up and releases connections, and
   may restore a connection in case of a failure.  The control plane
   also performs other functions in support of call and connection

   control, such as neighbour discovery and routing information
   dissemination.

   Transponder: A Transponder is a network element that performs O/E/O
   (Optical /Electrical/Optical) conversion.  In this document it is
   referred only transponders with 3R (rather than 2R or 1R
   regeneration) as defined in [ITU.G.872].

   Client DWDM interface: A Transceiver element that performs E/O
   (Electrical/Optical) conversion.  In this document it is referred as
   the DWDM side of a transponder as defined in [ITU.G.872].

3.  Solution Space

   The solution space of this document is focusing on aspects related to
   the management and control of single-channel optical interface
   parameters of physical point-to-point and ring DWDM applications on
   single-mode optical fibres and allows the direct connection of a wide
   variety of equipment using a DWDM link, for example

   1.  A digital cross-connect with multiple optical interfaces,
       supplied by a different vendor from the line system

   2.  Devices as routing, switching or compute nodes, each from a
       different vendor, providing optical line interfaces

   3.  A combination of the above

3.1.  Comparison of approaches for transverse compatibility

   This section describes two ways to achieve transverse compatibility.
   Section 3.1.1 describes the classic model based on well defined
   inter-domain interfaces.  Section 3.1.2 defines a model ensuring
   interoperability on the line side of the optical network.

3.1.1.  Multivendor DWDM line system with transponders

   As illustrated in Figure 1, for this approach interoperability is
   achieved via the use of optical transponders providing OEO (allowing
   conversion to appropriate parameters).  The optical interfaces can
   then be any short reach standardized optical interface that both
   vendors support, such as those found in [ITU-T G.957] [ITU-T G.691],
   [ITU-T G.693], [ITU-T G.959.1], etc.

         Figure 1: Inter and Intra-Domain Interface Identification

   In the scenario of Figure 1 the administrative domain is defined by
   the Interdomain Interface (IrDI).  This interface terminates the DWDM
   domain.  The line side is characterized by the IaDI.  This interface
   specifies the internal parameter set of the optical administrative
   domain.  In the case of a client DWDM interface deployment this
   interface moves into the client device and extends the optical and
   administrative domain towards the client node.  ITU-T G.698.2 for
   example specifies the parameter set for a certain set of
   applications.

   This document elaborates only the IaDI Interface as shown in Figure 1
   as transversely compatible and multi-vendor interface within one
   administrative domain controlled by the network operator.

   SNMP/SMI, Yang models and LMP TLV to support the direct exchange of
   information between the client and the network management and control
   plane will be specified in further documents.

3.1.2.  Integrated single channel DWDM deployments on the client site

   In case of a deployment as shown in Figure 2, through the use of DWDM
   interfaces, multi-vendor interconnection can also be achieved while
   removing the need for one short reach transmitter and receiver pair
   per channel (eliminating the transponders).

   Figure 2 shows a set of reference points, for single-channel
   connection (Ss and Rs) between transmitters (Tx) and receivers (Rx).
   Here the DWDM network elements include an optical multiplexer (OM)
   and an optical demultiplexer (OD) (which are used as a pair with the
   peer element), one or more optical amplifiers and may also include
   one or more OADMs.

4.  Solutions for managing and controlling single channel optical
    interface

   Operation and management of WDM systems is traditionally seen as a
   homogenous group of tasks that could be carried out best when a
   single management system or an umbrella management system is used.
   Currently each WDM vendor provides an Element Management System (EMS)
   that also provisions the wavelengths.  In a multi-vendor line system,
   such single-vendor EMS requirement is no more effective.  New methods
   of managing and controlling line systems need to be looked at.

   Therefore from the operational point of view the following approaches
   will be considered to manage and operate optical interfaces.

   1.  Separate operation and management of client device and the
       transport network whereas the interface of the client belongs to
       the administrative domain of the transport network and will be
       managed by the transport group.  This results in two different
       approaches to send information to the management system

       a.  Direct connection from the client to the management system,
       ensuring a management of the DWDM interface of the optical
       network (e.g.  EMS, NMS)

       b.  Indirect connection to the management system of the optical
       network using a protocol (LMP) between the client device and the
       directly connected WDM system node to exchange management
       information with the optical domain

   2.  Common operation and management of client device including the
       single channel DWDM part and the Transport network

   The first option keeps the status quo in large carrier networks as
   mentioned above.  In that case it must be ensured that the full FCAPS
   Management (Fault, Configuration, Accounting, Performance and
   Security) capabilities are supported.  This means from the management
   staff point of view nothing changes.  The transceiver/receiver
   optical interface will be part of the optical management domain and
   will be managed from the transport management staff.

   The second solution addresses the case where underlying WDM transport
   network is mainly used to interconnect a homogeneous set of client
   nodes (e.g.  IP routers or digital crossconnects).  Since the service
   creation and restoration could be done by the higher layers (e.g.

   IP), this may lead to an efficient network operation and a higher
   level of integration.

4.1.  Separate Operation and Management Approaches

4.1.1.  Direct connection to the management system

   As depicted in Figure 3 (case 1a) one possibility to manage the
   optical interface within the client domain is a direct connection to
   the management system of the optical domain.  This ensures
   manageability as usual.

   The exchange of management information between client device and the
   management system assumes that some form of a direct management
   communication link exists between the client device and the DWDM
   management system (e.g.  EMS).  This may be an Ethernet Link or a DCN
   connection (management communication channel MCC).

   It must be ensured that the optical network interface can be managed
   in a standardized way to enable interoperable solutions between
   different optical interface vendors and vendors of the optical
   network management application.  RFC 3591 [RFC3591] defines managed
   objects for the optical interface type but needs further extension to
   cover the optical parameters required by this framework document.
   Therefore an extension to this MIB for the optical interface has been
   drafted in [DWDM-interface-MIB].  SNMP is used to read parameters and
   get notifications and alarms, netconf and yang models are needed to
   easily provision the interface with the right parameter set as
   described in [YANG]

   Note that a software update of the optical interface components of
   the client nodes must not lead obligatory to an update of the
   software of the EMS and vice versa.

   An alternative as shown in Figure 4 can be used in cases where a more
   integrated relationship between transport node (e.g.  OM or OD or
   ROADM) and client device is aspired.  In that case a combination of
   control plane features and manual management will be used.

   The LMP based on RFC 4209 does not yet support the transmission of

   to the existing extensions of the protocol.  The use of LMP-WDM
   assumes that some form of a control channel exists between the client

   node and the WDM equipment.  This may be a dedicated lambda or an
   Ethernet Link.

4.2.  Control Plane Considerations

   The concept of integrated single channel DWDM interfaces equally
   applies to management and control plane mechanisms.  GMPLS control
   plane protocols have been extended for WSON, e.g.  [RFC7689] for
   fixed grid signal and for flexi-grid [RFC7792].  One important aspect
   of the [G.698.2] is the fact that it includes the wavelength that is
   supported by the given link.  Therefore, the link can logically be
   considered as a fiber that is transparent only for a single
   wavelength.  In other words, the wavelength becomes a characteristic
   of the link itself.

   Nevertheless the procedure to light up the fiber may vary depending
   on the implementation.  Since the implementation is unknown a priori,
   different sequences to light up a wavelength need to be considered:

   1.  Interface first, interface tuning: The transmitter is switched on
       and the link is immediately transparent to its wavelength.  This
       requires the transmitter to carefully tune power and frequency
       not overload the line system or to create transients.

   2.  Interface first, OLS tuning: The transmitter is switched on first
       and can immediately go to the max power allowed since the OLS
       performs the power tuning.  This leads to an intermediate state
       where the receiver does not receive a valid signal while the
       transmitter is sending out one.  Alarm suppression mechanisms
       shall be employed to overcome that condition.

   3.  OLS first, interface tuning: At first the OLS is tuned to be
       transparent for a given wavelength, then transponders need to be
       tuned up.  Since the OLS in general requires the presence of a
       wavelength to fine-tune its internal facilities there may be a
       period where a valid signal is transmitted but the receiver is
       unable to detect it.  This equally need to be covered by alarm
       suppression mechanisms.

   4.  OLS first, OLS tuning: The OLS is programmed to be transparent
       for a given wavelength, then the interfaces need to be switched
       on and further power tuning takes place.  The sequencing of
       enabling the link needs to be covered as well.

   The preferred way to address these in a Control Plane enabled network
   is neighbour discovery including exchange of link characteristics and
   link property correlation.  The general mechanisms are covered in
   RFC4209 [LMP-WDM] and RFC 4204[LMP] which provides the necessary

Internet-Draft  draft-ietf-ccamp-dwdm-if-mng-ctrl-fwk-07  September 2017


   protocol framework to exchange those characteristics between client
   and black link.  LMP-WDM is not intended for exchanging routing or
   signaling information nor to provision the lambda in the transceiver
   but covers:

   1.  Control channel management

   2.  Link property correlation

   3.  Link verification

   4.  Fault management

   Extensions to LMP/LMP-WDM covering the parameter sets (application
   codes) are needed.  Additionally, when client and server side are
   managed by different operational entities, link state exchange is
   required to align the management systems.

4.2.1.  Considerations using GMPLS signaling

   The deployment of single channel optical interfaces is leading to
   some functional changes related to the control plane models and has
   therefore some impact on the existing interfaces especially in the
   case of a model where the edge node requests resources from the core
   node and the edges node do not participate in the routing protocol
   instance that runs among the core nodes.  RFC 4208 [RFC4208] defines
   the GMPLS UNI that can be used between edge and core node.  In case
   of integrated interfaces deployment additional functionalities are
   needed to setup a connection.

   It is necessary to differentiate between topology/signalling
   information and configuration parameters that are needed to setup a
   wavelength path.  RSVP-TE could be used for the signalling and the
   reservation of the wavelength path.  But there are additional
   information needed before RSVP-TE can start the signalling process.
   There are three possibilities to proceed:

   a.  Using RSVP-TE only for the signalling and LMP as described above
       to exchange information to configure the optical interface within
       the edge node or

   b.  RSVP-TE (typically with loose ERO) to transport additional
       information

   c.  Leaking IGP information instead of exchanging this information
       needed from the optical network to the edge node (UNI will be
       transformed to a border-peer model, see RFC 5146)




Kunze, et al.             Expires March 8, 2018                [Page 13]

   Furthermore following issues should be addressed:

   a) The Communication between peering edge nodes using an out of band
   control channel.  The two nodes should exchange their optical
   capabilities.  An extended version of LMP is needed to exchange FEC
   Modulation scheme, etc.  that must be the same.  It would be helpful
   to define some common profiles that will be supported.  Only if the
   profiles match with both interface capabilities it is possible start
   signaling.

   b) Due to the bidirectional wavelength path that must be setup, the
   upstream edge node must include a wavelength value into the RSVP-TE
   Path message.  But in the case of a UNI model the client device may
   not have full information about which wavelength must/should be
   selected, whereas this information must be exchanged between the edge
   and the core node.  The special value defined in
   [Network-Assigned-Upstream-Label] allows the optical network to
   assign the actual wavelength to be used by the upstream transponder,
   which is a simple and efficient solution to this issue.

5.  Use cases

   A Comparison with the traditional operation scenarios provides an
   insight of similarities and distinctions in operation and management
   of DWDM interfaces.  The following use cases provide an overview
   about operation and maintenance processes.

5.1.  Service Setup

   It is necessary to differentiate between different operational issues
   for setting up a light path (a DWDM connection is specific in having
   defined maximum impairments) within an operational network.

   The first step is to determine if transceivers located at different
   end-points are interoperable, i.e. support a common set of
   operational parameters.  In this step it is required to determine
   transceiver capabilities in a way to be able to correlate them for
   interoperability purposes.  Such parameters include modulation
   scheme, modulation parameters, FEC to name a few.  If both
   transceivers are controlled by the same NMS or CP, such data is
   readily available.  However in cases like Fig.4 a protocol need to be
   used to inform the controlling instance (NMS or CP) about transceiver
   parameters.  It is suggested to extend LMP for that purpose.

   The second step is to determine the feasibility of a lightpath
   between two transceivers without applying an optical signal.
   Understanding the limitations of the transceiver pair, a route
   through tho optical network has to be found, whereby each route has



Kunze, et al.             Expires March 8, 2018                [Page 14]


Internet-Draft  draft-ietf-ccamp-dwdm-if-mng-ctrl-fwk-07  September 2017


   an individual set of impairments deteriorating a wavelength traveling
   along that route.  Since a single transceiver can support multiple
   parameter sets, the selection of a route may limit the permissible
   parameter sets determined in step1.

   The third step is then to setup the connection itself and to
   determine the Wavelength.  This is done using the NMS of the optical
   transport network or by means of a control plane interaction such as
   signaling and includes the route information as well as the parameter
   set information necessary to enable communication.

   In a fourth step, Optical monitoring is activated in the WDM network
   in order to monitor the status of the connection.  The monitor
   functions of the optical interfaces at the terminals are also
   activated in order to monitor the end to end connection.

   Furthermore it should be possible to automate this step.  After
   connecting the client device towards the first control plane managed
   transport node a control connection may e.g. be automatically
   established using LMP.

5.2.  Link monitoring Use Cases

   The use cases described below are assuming that power monitoring
   functions are available in the ingress and egress network element of
   the DWDM network, respectively.  By performing link property
   correlation it would be beneficial to include the current transmit
   power value at reference point Ss and the current received power
   value at reference point Rs.  For example if the Client transmitter
   power has a value of 0dBm and the ROADM interface measured power is
   -6dBm the fiber patch cord connecting the two nodes may be pinched or
   the connectors are dirty.  As discussed before, the actual route or
   selection of a specific wavelength within the allowed set is outside
   the scope of LMP.  The computing entities (e.g. the first optical
   node originating the circuit) can rely on GMPLS IGP (OSPF) to
   retrieve all the information related to the network, calculate the
   path to reach the endpoint and signal the path implementation through
   the network via RSVP-TE.

   G.698.2 defines a single channel optical interface for DWDM systems
   that allows interconnecting network-external optical transponders
   across a DWDM network.  The optical transponders are external to the
   DWDM network.  This so-called 'black link' approach illustrated in
   Figure 5-1 of G.698.2 and a copy of this figure is provided below.
   The single channel fiber link between the Ss/Rs reference points and
   the ingress/egress port of the network element on the domain boundary
   of the DWDM network (DWDM border NE) is called access link in this
   contribution.  Based on the definition in G.698.2 it is part of the

   DWDM network.  The access link is typically realized as a passive
   fiber link that has a specific optical attenuation (insertion loss).
   As the access link is an integral part of the DWDM network, it is
   desirable to monitor its attenuation.  Therefore, it is useful to
   detect an increase of the access link attenuation, for example, when
   the access link fiber has been disconnected and reconnected
   (maintenance) and a bad patch panel connection (connector) resulted
   in a significantly higher access link attenuation (loss of signal in
   the extreme case of an open connector or a fiber cut).  In the
   following section, two use cases are presented and discussed:

        1) pure access link monitoring
        2) access link monitoring with a power control loop

   These use cases require a power monitor as described in G.697 (see
   section 6.1.2), that is capable to measure the optical power of the
   incoming or outgoing single channel signal.  The use case where a
   power control loop is in place could even be used to compensate an
   increased attenuation if the optical transmitter can still be
   operated within its output power range defined by its application
   code.

5.2.1.  Pure Access Link (AL) Monitoring Use Case


     Figure 6 illustrates the access link monitoring use case and the
     different physical properties involved that are defined below:

   - Ss, Rs: Single Channel reference points
   - P(Tx):  current optical output power of transmitter Tx
   - a(Tx):  access link attenuation in Tx direction (external
             transponder point of view)
   - P(in):  measured current optical input power at the input port
             of border DWDM NE
   - t:      user defined threshold (tolerance)
   - P(out): measured current optical output power at the output port
             of border DWDM NE
   - a(Rx):  access link attenuation in Rx direction (external
             transponder point of view)
   - P(Rx):  current optical input power of receiver Rx

   Description:
   - The access link attenuation in both directions (a(Tx), a(Rx))
     is known or can be determined as part of the commissioning
     process.  Typically, both values are very similar.
   - A threshold value t has been configured by the operator. This
     should also be done during commissioning.
   - A control plane protocol is in place that allows
     to periodically send the optical power values P(Tx) and P(Rx)
     to the control plane protocol instance on the DWDM border NE.
     This is illustrated in Figure 3.
   - The DWDM border NE is capable to periodically measure the optical
     power Pin and Pout as defined in G.697 by power monitoring points
     depicted as yellow triangles in the figures below.

   Access Link monitoring process:
   - Tx direction: the measured optical input power Pin is compared
     with the expected optical input power P(Tx) - a(Tx). If the
     measured optical input power P(in) drops below the value
     (P(Tx) - a(Tx) - t) a low power alarm shall be raised indicating
     that the access link attenuation has exceeded a(Tx) + t.
   - Rx direction: the measured optical input power P(Rx) is
     compared with the expected optical input power P(out) - a(Rx).
     If the measured optical input power P(Rx) drops below the value
     (P(out) - a(Rx) - t) a
     low power alarm shall be raised indicating that the access link
     attenuation has exceeded a(Rx) + t.
   - to avoid toggling errors, the low power alarm threshold shall be

                       Figure 6: Extended LMP Model

5.2.2.  Power Control Loop Use Case


      This use case is based on the access link monitoring use case as
      described above. In addition, the border NE is running a power
      control application that is capable to control the optical output
      power of the single channel tributary signal at the output port
      of the border DWDM NE (towards the external receiver Rx) and the
      optical output power of the single channel tributary signal at
      the external transmitter Tx within their known operating range.
      The time scale of this control loop is typically relatively slow
      (e.g. some 10s or minutes) because the access link attenuation
      is not expected to vary much over time (the attenuation only
      changes when re-cabling occurs).
      From a data plane perspective, this use case does not require
      additional data plane extensions. It does only require a protocol
      extension in the control plane (e.g. this LMP draft) that allows
      the power control application residing in the DWDM border NE to
      modify the optical output power of the DWDM domain-external
      transmitter Tx within the range of the currently used application
      code. Figure 5 below illustrates this use case utilizing the LMP
      protocol with extensions defined in this draft.

6.  Requirements

   Even if network architectures becomes more complex the management and
   operation as well as the provisioning process should have a higher
   degree of automation or should be fully automated.  Simplifying and
   automating the entire management and provisioning process of the
   network in combination with a higher link utilization and faster
   restoration times will be the major requirements that has been
   addressed in this section.

   Data Plane interoperability as defined for example in [ITU.G698.2] is
   a precondition to ensure plain solutions and allow the usage of
   standardized interfaces between network and control/management plane.

   The following requirements are focusing on the usage of DWDM
   interfaces.

   1  To ensure a lean management and provisioning process of single
      channel interfaces management and control plane of the client
      and DWDM network MUST be aware of the parameters of the
      interfaces and the optical network to properly setup the optical
      connection.

   2  A standard-based northbound API (to network management system)
      based on Netconf SHOULD be supported, alternatively SNMP MAY
      be supported too.

   3  A standard-based data model for single channel interfaces MUST be
      supported to exchange optical parameters with control/management
      plane.

   4  Netconf SHOULD be used also for configuration of the single
      channel interfaces including the power setting

   5  LMP SHOULD be extended and used in cases where optical
      parameters need to be exchanged between peer nodes to correlate
      link characteristics and adopt the working mode of the single
      channel interface.

   6  LMP MAY be used to adjust the output power of the single
      channel DWDM interface to ensure that the interface works in
      the right range.

   7  RSVP-TE MAY be used to exchange some relevant parameters between
      the client and the optical node (e.g. the label value), without
      preventing the network to remain in charge of the optical path
      computation

   8  Power monitoring functions at both ends of the DWDM connection
      SHOULD be used to further automate the setup and shoutdown
      process of the optical interfaces.

   9  A standardized procedure to setup an optical connection SHOULD
      be defined and implemented in DWDM and client devices
      (containing the single channel optical interface).

   10 Pre-tested and configured backup paths SHOULD be stored in so
      called backup profiles. In fault cases this wavelength routes
      SHOULD be used to recover the service.

   11  LMP MAY be used to monitor and observe the access link.

7.  Acknowledgements

   The authors would like to thank all who supported the work with
   fruitful discussions and contributions.

8.  IANA Considerations

   This memo includes no request to IANA.

9.  Security Considerations

   The architecture and solution space in scope of this framework
   imposes no additional requirements to the security models already
   defined in RFC5920 for packet/optical networks using GMPLS, covering
   also Control Plane and Management interfaces.  Respective security
   mechanisms of the components and protocols, e.g.  LMP security
   models, can be applied unchanged.

   As this framework is focusing on the single operator use case, the
   security concerns can be relaxed to a subset compared to a setup
   where information is exchanged between external parties and over
   external interfaces.

   Concerning the access control to Management interfaces, security
   issues can be generally addressed by authentication techniques
   providing origin verification, integrity and confidentiality.
   Additionally, access to Management interfaces can be physically or
   logically isolated, by configuring them to be only accessible out-of-
   band, through a system that is physically or logically separated from
   the rest of the network infrastructure.  In case where management
   interfaces are accessible in-band at the client device or within the
   optical transport netork domain, filtering or firewalling techniques
   can be used to restrict unauthorized in-band traffic.  Authentication
   techniques may be additionally used in all cases.
