Wavelength Routing Protocol (WaRP)


Wavelength Routing Protocol (WaRP) is a dynamic routing protocol that views the network as a fluid bandwidth pool and provides for point-and-click autoprovisioning of end-to-end wavelength paths. Depending on the class of service required by the service layer, bandwidth can be presented with varying guarantees of availability, latency, and restoration times. As a result, bandwidth is available for services ranging from highly mission-critical applications to intranet or Internet access and bulk transport.
