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.
