A Fibre Channel pseudowire (PW) is used to carry Fibre Channel
traffic over an MPLS network. This enables service providers to take
advantage of MPLS to offer "emulated" Fibre Channel services. This
document specifies the encapsulation of Fibre Channel traffic within
a pseudowire. It also specifies the common procedures for using a PW
to provide a Fibre Channel service. [STANDARDS-TRACK]
This document is a product of the Pseudowire Emulation Edge to Edge Working Group of the IETF.
This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.
STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements. Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
