This Recommendation specifies a methodology for dynamically changing (i.e., increasing and decreasing) the capacity of a container that is transported in a generic transport network (e.g., over SDH or OTN network using Virtual Concatenation). In general, this change of capacity does not affect the traffic. In addition, the methodology also provides survivability capabilities, automatically decreasing the capacity if a member experiences a failure in the network, and increasing the capacity when the network fault is repaired.
