            Shortest Path Bridging, MAC Mode Support over EVPN 
                       draft-ietf-bess-spbm-evpn-01 

Abstract 

   This document describes how Ethernet Shortest Path Bridging MAC mode 
   (802.1aq) can be combined with EVPN to interwork with PBB-PEs as 
   described in the PBB-EVPN solution. This is achieved via   
   operational isolation of each Ethernet network subtending an EVPN 
   core while supporting full interworking between the different 
   variations of Ethernet networks.

1. Introduction 

   This document describes how Ethernet Shortest Path Bridging MAC mode 
   (SPBM) along with Provider Backbone Bridging Provider Edges (PBB-PEs) 
   and Provider Backbone Bridged Networks (PBBNs) can be supported by 
   Ethernet VPNs (EVPNs) such that each SPBM island is operationally
