Pseudowires (PWs) are used in MPLS networks for various services including carrying layer 2 and layer 3 data packets. This document describes the procedure for encapsulation of the Simple Two-Way Active Measurement Protocol (STAMP) defined in RFC 8762 and its optional extensions defined in RFC 8972 for PWs in MPLS networks. The procedure uses PW Generic Associated Channel (G-ACh) to encapsulate the STAMP test packets with or without an IP/UDP header.
