This draft describes the basic mode of Layer 1 VPNs (L1VPN BM) that is port based VPNs. In L1VPN BM, the basic unit of service is a Label Switched Path (LSP) between a pair of customer ports within a given VPN port-topology. This draft defines the operational model using either provisioning or a VPN auto-discovery mechanism and the signaling extensions for the L1VPN BM.
