Abstract

This document describes how EVPN can be used to support virtual private wire service (VPWS) in MPLS/IP networks. EVPN enables the following characteristics for VPWS: single-active as well as all- active multi-homing with flow-based load-balancing, eliminates the need for single-segment and multi-segment PW signaling, and provides fast protection using data-plane prefix independent convergence upon node or link failure.
