With BGP/MPLS Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), providing any-to-any
connectivity among sites of a given VPN would require each 
Provider Edge (PE) router connected to one or more of these sites 
to hold all the routes of that VPN.  The approach described in 
this document allows the VPN service provider to reduce the number 
of PE routers that have to maintain all these routes by requiring 
only a subset of these routers to maintain all these routes.

Furthermore, when PE routers use ingress replication to
carry the multicast traffic of VPN customers, the approach 
described in this document may, under certain circumstances, 
reduce bandwidth inefficiency associated with ingress replication 
and redistribute the replication load among PE routers.

This document is a product of the Layer 3 Virtual Private Networks Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
