Relationships between data links and TE links

For ASON services, data links are member links displayed on the NMS. Member links are considered as small bandwidth units of a TE link. A TE link can consist of multiple member links. In the ASON software of the current version, a TE link contains only one member link.
TE links are flooded to the entire network based on the OSPF protocol. Each ASON NE stores network-wide TE link information. Member links are not flooded to the entire network. Each ASON NE manages and stores only its own member links.
