      Requirements and Framework for Point-to-Multipoint Pseudowires                    over MPLS Packet Switched Networks

Abstract

   This document presents a set of requirements and a framework for    providing a point-to-multipoint pseudowire (PW) over MPLS Packet    Switched Networks.  The requirements identified in this document are    related to architecture, signaling, and maintenance aspects of point-    to-multipoint PW operation.  They are proposed as guidelines for the    standardization of such mechanisms.  Among other potential    applications, point-to-multipoint PWs can be used to optimize the    support of multicast Layer 2 services (Virtual Private LAN Service    and Virtual Private Multicast Service).
