The Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol, Version 3 (L2TPv3) defines a
protocol for tunneling a variety of payload types over IP networks.
This document defines how to carry an MPLS label stack and its
payload over the L2TPv3 data encapsulation.  This enables an
application that traditionally requires an MPLS-enabled core network,
to utilize an L2TPv3 encapsulation over an IP network instead.  

This document is a product of the Multiprotocol Label Switching
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 of the 
Internet Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization 
state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is
