This document describes an architecture for extending pseudowire
emulation across multiple packet switched network (PSN) segments.
Scenarios are discussed where each segment of a given edge-to-edge emulated
service spans a different provider's PSN, as are other scenarios where the
emulated service originates and terminates on the same provider's 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. This memo provides information for the Internet community.
This document is a product of the Pseudo Wire Emulation Edge to Edge Working Group of the IETF.
