Technical Summary

The signaling protocols used to establish point-to-point pseudowires
include type-length-value (TLV) fields that identify pseudowire endpoints
called attachment individual identifiers (AII). This document defines AII
structures in the form of new AII TLV fields that support AII aggregation
for improved scalability.

Working Group Summary

This document has been reviewed by the experts in the PWE3 WG and there
are no outstanding issues.

 Protocol Quality

This is a very simple and well written extension to the PWE3 signaling
protocol. No protocol issues are anticipated. The document was reviewed
for the IESG by Mark Townsley, Danny McPherson is the document shepherd.
