This document provides a framework and service level requirements for Virtual Private Multicast Service (VPMS). VPMS is defined as a Layer 2 VPN service that provides point-to-multipoint connectivity for a variety of Layer 2 link layers across an IP or MPLS-enabled PSN. This document outlines architectural service models of VPMS and states generic and high level requirements. This is intended to aid in developing protocols and mechanisms to support VPMS.
