              Dynamic Placement of Multi-Segment Pseudowires


   RFC 5254 describes the service provider requirements for extending    the reach of pseudowires (PWs) across multiple Packet Switched    Network domains.  A multi-segment PW is defined as a set of two or    more contiguous PW segments that behave and function as a single    point-to-point PW.  This document describes extensions to the PW    control protocol to dynamically place the segments of the multi-    segment pseudowire among a set of Provider Edge (PE) routers.  This    document also updates RFC 6073 by updating the value of the Length    field of the PW Switching Point PE Sub-TLV Type 0x06 to 14.
