This document describes a method by which MPLS-TP Pseudowires (PW) can be configured in an LER using OpenFlow 1.3. In addition to the configuration of PWs this document also specifies how to enact OAM for these PWs using standard IETF conventions defined by the GAL label method. The primary goal of this document is to provide a simple and yet flexible method for configuring PWs using standardized tools from the emerging SDN toolkit.
