   EVPN and PBB-EVPN introduce a family of solutions for multipoint
   Ethernet services over MPLS/IP network with many advanced
   capabilities among which their multi-homing capabilities. These
   solutions define two types of multi-homing for an Ethernet Segment
   (ES): 1) Single-Active and 2) All-Active, where an Ethernet Segment
   is defined as a set of links between the multi-homed device/network
   and the set of PE devices that they are connected to.

   Some Service Providers want to extend the concept of the physical
   links in an ES to Ethernet Virtual Circuits (EVCs) where many of such
   EVCs can be aggregated on a single physical External Network-to-
   Network Interface (ENNI). An ES that consists of a set of EVCs
   instead of physical links is referred to as a virtual ES (vES). This
   draft describes the requirements and the extensions needed to support
   vES in EVPN and PBB-EVPN.
