Abstract

A multi-domain GMPLS layer-2 switch capable network with VLAN tag swapping is demonstrated for the first time. In this demonstration, we verify three new features, establishing path with designating VLAN IDs, swapping VLAN ID on prototype switch, and management of VLAN IDs per domain. Using those three features, carrier-class Ethernet backbone networks which supports path route designation in multi-domain network can be established.
