This document defines a new BGP attribute in BGP based multicast VPN, that allows a MVPN PE router to inform the rest of MVPN PE routers whether it is a sender site/receiver site and there by avoid all other PEs from setting up P-tunnels to the sender site PE. This would reduce control plane states in the network and allow efficient network bandwidth utilization .
