This document proposes a solution for Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) Ethernet Tree (E-Tree) support in Virtual Private LAN Service using LDP Signaling (LDP-VPLS) [RFC4762],BGP signaling (BGP-VPLS) [RFC4761] or BGP auto-discovery (BGP-AD) [RFC6074]. The proposed solution is characterized by the use of two PWs between a pair of PEs. This solution is applicable for both VPLS and H-VPLS.
