This document describes the minimal set of procedures required to build multi-vendor inter-operable implementations of multicast for BGP/MPLS VPNs. It is based on prior specifications of multicast for BGP/MPLS VPN specifications that have been implemented and deployed. The procedures described herein require PIM-SM as the multicast routing protocol in the SP network.
