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.
