There is a need to provide a method of carrying a packet service over an MPLS PSN in a way that provides isolation between the two networks. The server MPLS network may be an MPLS network or a network conforming to the MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) [RFC5317]. The client may also be either an MPLS network or a network conforming to the MPLS-TP. Considerations regarding the use of an MPLS network as a server for an MPLS-TP network are outside the scope of this document.

Packet Pseudowire Encapsulation over an MPLS PSN
This document describes a pseudowire mechanism that is used to transport a packet service over an MPLS PSN in the case where the client Label Switching Router (LSR) and the server Provider Edge equipments are co-resident in the same equipment. This pseudowire mechanism may be used to carry all of the required layer 2 and layer 3 protocols between the pair of client LSRs.
