Technical Summary This document provides encapsulation formats and semantics for emulating SONET/SDH circuits and services over packet-switched networks, and MPLS networks in particular. Working Group Summary This draft has been extensively reviewed by the PWE3 WG and there is consensus for it. It was recently revised with modifications to the control word to bring it into line with the other PWE3 specifications. Protocol Quality This document was reviewed by Mark Townsley. Note to RFC Editor OLD "are not a substitute for PW layer security." NEW "are not a substitute for securing the PW and underlying MPLS network itself."
