This document describes the preferred design of a Pseudowire
Emulation Edge-to-Edge (PWE3) Control Word to be used over an MPLS
packet switched network, and the Pseudowire Associated Channel
Header.  The design of these fields is chosen so that an MPLS Label
Switching Router performing MPLS payload inspection will not confuse
a PWE3 payload with an IP payload.  [STANDARDS TRACK]

This document is a product of the Pseudo Wire Emulation Edge to Edge
Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and 
suggestions for improvements.Please refer to the current edition
