       Cisco Systems' Solution for Multicast in BGP/MPLS IP VPNs


   This document describes the MVPN (Multicast in BGP/MPLS IP VPNs)    solution designed and deployed by Cisco Systems.  The procedures    specified in this document are largely a subset of the generalized    MVPN framework recently standardized by the IETF.  However, as the    deployment of the procedures specified herein predates the    publication of IETF standards (in some cases by over five years), an    implementation based on these procedures differs in some respects    from a fully standards-compliant implementation.  These differences    are pointed out in the document.
