A Fibre Channel pseudowire (PW) is used to carry Fibre Channel frames over an MPLS network. This enables service providers to offer "emulated" Fibre Channel services over existing MPLS networks. This document specifies the mechanisms controlling the reliable transport of Fibre Channel PW over MPLS networks. The encapsulation of Fibre Channel PDUs within a pseudowire and the procedures for using a PW to provide a Fibre Channel service are specified in [FC-encap].
