This document presents a solution for migrating L2VPN Virtual Private Wire Service (VPWS) to Ethernet VPN Virtual Private Wire Service (EVPN-VPWS) services. The solution allows the coexistence of EVPN and L2VPN services under the same point-to-point VPN instance. By using this seamless integration solution, a service provider can introduce EVPN into their existing L2VPN network or migrate from an existing L2VPN based network to EVPN. The migration may be done per pseudowire or per flexible-crossconnect (FXC) service basis. This document specifies control-plane and forwarding behaviors.
