This document describes how to connect pseudowires (PWs) between
different Packet Switched Network (PSN) domains or between two or
more distinct PW control plane domains, where a control plane domain
uses a common control plane protocol or instance of that protocol for
a given PW.  The different PW control plane domains may belong to
independent autonomous systems, or the PSN technology is
heterogeneous, or a PW might need to be aggregated at a specific PSN
point.  The PW packet data units are simply switched from one PW to
another without changing the PW payload.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
