Technical Summary This document presents a set of functional requirements for network solutions that allow the deployment of IP multicast within L3 Provider Provisioned virtual private networks (PPVPNs). It specifies requirements both from the end user and service provider standpoints. It is intended that potential solutions specifying the support of IP multicast within such VPNs will use these requirements as guidelines. Working Group Summary There was strong consensus to publish. Protocol Quality This document was reviewed for the IESG by Mark Townsley. Note to RFC Editor OLD In Section 5.2.10 ' ... SNMP [RFC3411] MIBs (Management Information Bases) ...' New: '...
