A Point-to-Multipoint (P2MP) Pseudowire (PW) is a mechanism that emulates the essential attributes of a P2MP Telecommunications service such as P2MP ATM over a Packet Switched Network (PSN). This document describes the encapsulation and data plane procedures for a P2MP PW. These procedures are meant to be independent of the control plane used to signal a P2MP PW.
