Hierarchical Service Function Chaining (hSFC) is a network
architecture allowing an organization to decompose a large-scale
network into multiple domains of administration.

The goals of hSFC are to make a large-scale network easier to design,
simpler to control, and supportive of independent functional groups
within large network operators.

This document is a product of the Service Function Chaining Working Group of the IETF.
