GMPLS (Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching) is a promising candidate for a unified optical control plane technology. For the realization of the all-optical network in the future, there are several key technologies and challenges that have to be considered. But, the real implementations of an optical control plane are still not clear. So, the best way to resolve tactical implementations concerns of GMPLS based optical control plane is to conduct feasibility test. This paper describes the feasibility test of GMPLS based all-optical network for optical quality control. We deployed GMPLS peer model and evaluate the effective use of optical unified control plane in order to realize optical quality control of label path. In the feasibility test, we prove the possibility of GMPLS based control plane to be used in next generation networks.
