This paper presents the design and experimental implementation of a service-oriented Internet Protocol (IP)/wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) management plane. In the proposed approach, compliant with International Telecommunication Union Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T)'s automatic-switched optical network (ASON), a distributed control plane performs signaling, routing, and discovery functions, and a decentralized management plane, both at information and architectural levels, performs cross-plane actions to enforce service establishment and monitoring with a view to guarantee service level agreements (SLAs). In-service monitoring provides status of optical resources and services by using spectral- and time-domain information. Some performance aspects of the approach are evaluated in a real testbed featuring dense wavelength multiplexing and a control plane based on the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)'s generalized multiprotocol label switching (GMPLS).
