Summary: 
This letter proposes a hierarchical label-switched path (LSP) setup scheme, called ConSet, for multi-layer generalized multi-protocol label switching (GMPLS) networks. ConSet allows a Path message to be transmitted to the downstream neighbor node without waiting for the establishment of the higher-order LSP. Confirmation of the establishment of the higher-order LSP is performed at the ingress node of the higher-order LSP before a Resv message of the lower-order LSP is transmitted to the upstream neighbor node. ConSet is able to set up hierarchical LSPs faster than the sequential scheme.
