This document describes how to connect pseudowires (PWs) between
different Packet Switched Network (PSN) domains or between two or
more distinct PW control plane domains, where a control plane domain
uses a common control plane protocol or instance of that protocol for
a given PW.  The different PW control plane domains may belong to
independent autonomous systems, or the PSN technology is
heterogeneous, or a PW might need to be aggregated at a specific PSN
point.  The PW packet data units are simply switched from one PW to
another without changing the PW payload.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]

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
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
