Ballot Text

Technical Summary

   This draft describes the deployed MVPN (Multicast in BGP/MPLS IP
   VPNs) solution of Cisco Systems.

Working Group Summary

   This document is not the product of an IETF working group.

Document Quality

   I (Adrian Farrel) believe that early versions of this document and 
   other related documents were discussed at length in the L3VPN working
   group before it transitioned to the Routing Area. However, this 
   document has not been reviewed to consensus through the L3VPN working 

   I am led to believe that at least one implementation exists and that 
   there are deployments.


   This document is on the Independent Stream and has arrived
   from the RFC Editor.

   Adrian Farrel performed the RFC 5742 review.

RFC Editor Note

   The IESG has concluded that this work is related to IETF work done
   in the L3VPN WG, but this relationship does not prevent publishing.
