Technical Summary

   This document describes how to connect pseudowires (PW)
   between two distinct PW control planes or Packet Switched
   Network (PSN) domains. The PW control planes may belong to
   independent autonomous systems, or the PSN technology is
   heterogeneous, or a PW might need to be aggregated at a
   specific PSN point. The PW packet data units are simply
   switched from one PW to another without changing the PW
