The influence of the control plane topology to the quality of services offered by the GMPLS network is considered in this paper. Several simulation experiments are prepared to verify this influence. The simulations assume separation of the functional planes of GMPLS and two typical topologies ring and mesh. The GMPLS control plane simulator, prepared by authors, simulate most of the control plane behavior by including OSPF-TE, RSVP-TE, protection and restoration procedures. The simulation results confirm quality of services improvement by providing additional interconnection in the control plane.
