This paper proposes the Path Computation Element (PCE)-based backbone network architecture and verifies its feasibility through implementation and experiments. PCE communication Protocol (PCEP) is implemented for communication between the PCE and the management system to control and manage Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS)-based backbone networks.
