This document describes how Ethernet Shortest Path Bridging MAC mode
(SPBM) can be combined with Ethernet VPN (EVPN) to interwork with
Provider Backbone Bridging Provider Edges (PBB PEs) as
described in the PBB-EVPN solution (RFC 7623).  This is achieved via
operational isolation of each Ethernet network attached to an EVPN core
while supporting full interworking between the different variations
of Ethernet networks.

This document is a product of the BGP Enabled Services Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
