Dynamic sharing of the common physical network is envisioned as a key enabler for the emerging Internet technologies. This paper addresses challenges related to resource sharing in the physical layer and analyzes the performance of infrastructure service provision with control plane mechanisms based on generalized multi protocol label switching (GMPLS). In our approach, the provisioning of infrastructure services is supported by two novel concepts for GMPLS traffic engineering (TE): resource visibility and inter-domain exchange. Resource visibility is a new network control plane concept, which defines the usage polices for transmission, multiplexing, and switching resources in multiple GMPLS layers. In our architecture, every network resource may exhibit different visibility to different services at different layers. The inter-domain exchange, here referred to as GMPLS exchange point (GXP), is the physical layer equivalent of the Internet exchange point (IXP). Just as how the IXP manages interconnections of autonomous systems (AS) in the Internet, the GXP manages dynamic interconnections of multiple provider domains and enables them to advertise their physical resources to other domains. We model the dynamic provisioning of infrastructure services using graph theory and deploy GMPLS traffic engineering (TE) to optimize the routing and resource yields. The results obtained demonstrate that traffic engineering with resource visibility and GXP brings significant performance benefits in resource utilization and infrastructure extensibility, especially when network providers set up LSPs as a result of collaborative and carrier-neutral traffic engineering where they share information about resource capabilities and utilization
