The emergence of carrier grade transport technologies has led to a paradigm shift in inter-domain routing which became an important feature of the transport layer based on optical transmission and switching. While the new technologies have capabilities to provide end-to-end guaranteed quality of service (QoS), the lack of inter-operability between different technologies, administrative areas and control planes makes interdomain peering and provisioning below the conventional Internet Protocol (IP) layer a challenge. In this survey, we analyze various multi-domain routing models for emerging Layer 2 and WDM switched networks which have been proposed till date, and based on that survey, we highlight some open issues and future challenges pertaining to scalability, reliability, multi-domain QoS, control plane interworking and dynamic peering.
