Technical Summary

   This document describes how Ethernet Shortest Path Bridging MAC Mode
   (802.1aq) can be combined with EVPN in a way that interworks with
   PBB-PEs as described in the PBB-EVPN solution. This is achieved via
   operational isolation of each Ethernet network subtending an EVPN
   core while supporting full interworking between the different
   variations of Ethernet networks.

Working Group Summary

  This document is a product of the L2VPN Working Group and was handed out 
  to the BESS Working Group at the time of the closure of L2VPN.
