This document describes how Ethernet Shortest Path Bridging MAC mode (802.1aq) can be combined with EVPN in a way that interworks 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.
