* Technical Summary An ATM Pseudowire (PW) is used to carry ATM cells over an MPLS network. This enables service providers to offer "emulated" ATM services over existing MPLS networks. This document specifies a number of methods for the encapsulation of ATM cells within a pseudowire, and describes the applicability of each method. * Working Group Summary The PWE3 WG have thoroughly reviewed this design. The design is technically identical to Y.1411 and Y.1412, and the design represents the combined efforts of ITU SG13 and IETF PWE3WG. * Protocol Quality There are a number of existing implementations of this protocol. This document was reviewed for the IESG by Mark Townsley.
