The Multicast Virtual Private Network (MVPN) specifications require
the use of multicast tunnels ("P-tunnels") that traverse a service
provider's backbone network.  The P-tunnels are used for carrying
multicast traffic across the backbone.  A variety of P-tunnel types
are supported.  Bit Index Explicit Replication (BIER) is a new
architecture that provides optimal multicast forwarding through a
"multicast domain", without requiring intermediate routers to
maintain any per-flow state or to engage in an explicit tree-building
protocol.  This document specifies the protocol and procedures that
allow MVPN to use BIER as the method of carrying multicast traffic
over a service provider's backbone network.

This document is a product of the Bit Indexed Explicit Replication Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

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 Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
