Technical Summary This document describes a protocol that provides a control channel that is associated with a Pseudowire (PW), and its use for operations and management functions such as connectivity verification to be used over that control channel. VCCV applies to all supported access circuit and transport types currently defined for PWs. Working Group Summary This document has been reviewed by the experts in the PWE3 WG and there are no outstanding issues. Document Quality There are implementations of this protocol, and a significant number of vendors have indicated plans to implement the specification. The document was reviewed by Mark Townsley. Stewart Bryant is the document shepherd.
