This document proposes to use Customer VLAN ID as an identifier for traffic isolation in Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS). In this way, multiple bridge domains of customers can share a single VPLS instance while their traffic are separated. With this proposal, Service Providers can be relieved from the heavy provisioning overhead of large number of pseudowires in the environment where a mass of bridge domains need be connected.
