* Technical Summary This draft describes how a Point to Point Protocol (PPP), or High- Level Data Link Control (HDLC) Protocol Data Units over an MPLS network without terminating the PPP/HDLC protocol. This enables service providers to offer "emulated" HDLC, or PPP link services over existing MPLS networks. This document specifies the encapsulation of PPP/HDLC Packet Data Units (PDUs) within a PW. * Working Group Summary This work has been thoroughly analysed by the working group and there is consensus for the design. * Protocol Quality There are many implementations of this protocol, and it is in operational service. Note to RFC Editor OLD: It is also recommended that PPP devices MUST NOT negotiate PPP MRUs larger than that of the AC MTU. NEW: It is also RECOMMENDED that the PPP devices be configured to not negotiate PPP MRUs larger that of the AC MTU.
