Technical Summary The specification for Multicast Virtual Private Networks (MVPN) contains an option that allows the use of PIM as the control protocol between provider edge routers. It also contains an option that allows UDP-based "S-PMSI Join" messages to be used to bind particular customer multicast flows to particular tunnels through a service provider's network. This document extends the MVPN specification so that these options can be used when the customer multicast flows are IPv6 flows. Working Group Summary This document is a product of L3VPN WG. There were no technical comments on the document during the WG Last Call, which was completed in August 2010. Document Quality The document has been reviewed and there are no unresolved issues. There are no known impersonations of the protocol. Personnel Ben Niven-Jenkins is the Document Shepherd. Stewart Bryant is the Responsible Area Director.
