[RFC4762] describes a mechanism to remove or unlearn MAC addresses
that have been dynamically learned in a VPLS Instance for faster
convergence on topology change. The procedure also removes MAC
addresses in the VPLS that do not require relearning due to such
This document defines an enhancement to the MAC Address Withdrawal
procedure with empty MAC List [RFC4762], which enables a Provider
Edge(PE) device to remove only the MAC addresses that need to be
Additional extensions to [RFC4762] MAC Withdrawal procedures are
specified to provide optimized MAC flushing for the PBB-VPLS
specified in [PBB-VPLS Model].
