                          Segmented Pseudowire

Abstract

   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.
