Photonic Internet Lab. (PIL) is shooting for the leading edge photonic-GMPLS (Generalized Multi-protocol Label Switching) that utilizes wide-band, cost-effective photonic technology to implement IP-centric managed networks. PIL is a consortium for researching the GMPLS protocol and advancing a de facto standard in this area. Members make leading edge GMPLS code modules and test them at the lab site. The experimental results, new ideas, and protocols are contributed to standardization bodies such as IETF and OIF. This paper also describes the world's first trial of GMPLS multi-region (multi-layer), multi-route, multi-vender signaling.
