We evaluate resolution models for resource allocation in a GMPLS distributed control plane for heterogeneous all-optical networks. In a practical regional-to-backbone network environment, the local resolution model is advantageous in resource utilization, protocol compatibility and scalability. We demonstrate a lookup procedure, which inter-works with OSPF-TE and RSVP-TE protocols and allocates resources in the local resolution model.
