[RFC6718] describes the framework and requirements for pseudowire (PW) redundancy, and [RFC6870] specifies a PW redundancy mechanism for scenarios where a set of redundant PWs are configured between Provider Edge (PE) nodes in Single-Segment Pseudowire (SS-PW) [RFC3985] applications, or between Terminating Provider Edge (T-PE) nodes in Multi-Segment Pseudowire (MS-PW) [RFC5659] applications.

       Pseudowire Redundancy on the Switching Provider Edge (S-PE)


   This document describes Multi-Segment Pseudowire (MS-PW) protection    scenarios in which pseudowire redundancy is provided on the Switching    Provider Edge (S-PE) as defined in RFC 5659.  Operations of the S-PEs    that provide PW redundancy are specified in this document.  Signaling    of the Preferential Forwarding status as defined in RFCs 6870 and    6478 is reused.  This document does not require any change to the    Terminating Provider Edges (T-PEs) of MS-PW.
