This document specifies a mechanism to signal Pseudowire (PW) status messages using an PW associated channel (ACh). Such a mechanism is suitable for use where no PW dynamic control plane exits, known as static PWs, or where a Terminating Provider Edge (T-PE) needs to send a PW status message directly to a far end T-PE. The mechanism allows PW OAM message mapping and PW redundancy to operate on static PWs.
