Technical Summary This document describes transport of Ethernet frames over Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TPv3). This includes the transport of Ethernet port to port frames as well as the transport of Ethernet VLAN frames. The mechanism described in this document can be used in the creation of Pseudo Wires to transport Ethernet frames over an IP network. Working Group Summary The l2tpext WG has reviewed this document. All concerns raised during review and last call have been addressed. Protocol Quality This is yet another application of L2TPv3 to transport new type of traffic. The protocol was reviewed for the IESG by Jari Arkko.
