        Title           : An MPLS-Based Forwarding Plane for Service Function Chaining
        Authors         : Adrian Farrel

   This document describes how Service Function Chaining (SFC) can be
   achieved in an MPLS network by means of a logical representation of
   the Network Service Header (NSH) in an MPLS label stack.  That is,
   the NSH is not used, but the fields of the NSH are mapped to fields
   in the MPLS label stack.  It does not deprecate or replace the NSH,
   but acknowledges that there may be a need for an interim deployment
   of SFC functionality in brownfield networks.
