transport a packet service over an MPLS PSN in the case where the
client Label Switching Router (LSR) and the server Provider Edge
equipments are co-resident in the same equipment.  This pseudowire
mechanism may be used to carry all of the required layer 2 and layer
3 protocols between the pair of client LSRs.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
