                Inter-Chassis Communication Protocol for
 Layer 2 Virtual Private Network (L2VPN) Provider Edge (PE) Redundancy

Abstract

   This document specifies an Inter-Chassis Communication Protocol
   (ICCP) that enables Provider Edge (PE) device redundancy for Virtual
   Private Wire Service (VPWS) and Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS)
   applications.  The protocol runs within a set of two or more PEs,
   forming a Redundancy Group, for the purpose of synchronizing data
   among the systems.  It accommodates multi-chassis attachment circuit
   redundancy mechanisms as well as pseudowire redundancy mechanisms.
