Technical Summary This document describes an architecture for extending pseudowire emulation across multiple packet switched network segments. Scenarios are discussed where each segment of a given edge-to-edge emulated service spans a different provider's PSN, and where the emulated service originates and terminates on the same providers PSN, but may pass through several PSN tunnel segments in that PSN. It presents an architectural framework for such multi-segment pseudowires, defines terminology, and specifies the various protocol elements and their functions. 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 no issues of protocol quality. Personnel David Sinicrope (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the Document Shepherd for this document. Ralph Droms is the Responsible Area Director.
