                 TRILL Transparent Transport over MPLS 
                draft-muks-trill-transport-over-mpls-01

Abstract

   This document specifies how to interconnect multiple Transparent
   Interconnection of Lots of links (TRILL) sites which are separated by
   MPLS network using existing TRILL and VPLS standards. This draft
   addresses two problems 

   1) Providing connection between more than two TRILL sites that 
   are separated by MPLS provider network.

   2) Providing single logical virtualized TRILL network for different 
   tenants that are separated by MPLS provider network.
