This document describes Connectivity Verification (CV) Types using
Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) with Virtual Circuit
Connectivity Verification (VCCV).  VCCV provides a control channel
that is associated with a pseudowire (PW), as well as the
corresponding operations and management functions such as
connectivity verification to be used over that control channel.

This document is a product of the Pseudo Wire Emulation Edge to Edge Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
