Differentiated services provision according to clients or applications is an added feature that network operators ambition to fully provide. One of the possible approaches is to map DiffServ into MPLS based network. However in an IP over WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) network data flow traverse multiple layers and, therefore, Class-Type information from the MPLS DiffServ layer is eventually lost. Besides, with the implement of a Path Computation Element (PCE) on multi-layer and multi-domain networks, the bandwidth constraints used to differentiate services are no longer applied. This paper presents a proposal for a QoS DiffServ approach applied on PCE as a traffic grooming technique for WDM core networks and the problematic involved on the application of this technology on multilayer and multi-domain networks.
