This document specifies mechanisms for backward compatibility of Ethernet VPN Virtual Private Wire Service (EVPN-VPWS) solutions with legacy Virtual Private Wire Service (VPWS). It provides mechanisms for seamless integration in the same MPLS/IP network on a per- pseudowire or per-flexible-crossconnect basis. Implementation of this document enables service providers to introduce EVPN-VPWS PEs in their brown-field deployments of leagcy VPWS networks. This document specifies control-plane and forwarding behavior needed for auto- discovery of a pseudowire in order to enable seamless integration between EVPN-VPWS and VPWS PEs.
