Title : Pseudowire Setup and Maintenance using the Label Distribution Protocol
Author(s) : L. Martini, et al
Filename : draft-ietf-pwe3-rfc4447bis
Pages : 33
Date : July 10, 2012
Layer 2 services (such as Frame Relay, Asynchronus Transfer Mode, and
Ethernet) can be "emulated" over an MPLS backbone by encapsulating
the Layer 2 Packet Data Units (PDU) and then transmitting them over
"pseudowires". It is also possible to use pseudowires to provide
low-rate Time Dividion Multiplexed and Synchronous Optical NETworking
circuit emulation over a MPLS-enabled network. This document
specifies a protocol for establishing and maintaining the
pseudowires, using extensions to the Label Distribution Protocol
(LDP). Procedures for encapsulating Layer 2 PDUs are specified in a
set of companion documents.
