A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.

	Title		: BGP/MPLS VPNs
	Author(s)	: E. Rosen
	Filename	: draft-rosen-rfc2547bis-03.txt
	Pages		: 40

This document describes a method by which a Service Provider may use
an IP backbone to provide VPNs for its customers.  MPLS is used for
forwarding packets over the backbone, and BGP is used for
distributing routes over the backbone.  The primary goal of this
method is to support the case in which a client obtains IP backbone
services from a Service Provider or Service Providers with which it
maintains contractual relationships.  The client may be an
enterprise, a group of enterprises which need an extranet, an
Internet Service Provider, an application service provider, another
VPN Service Provider which uses this same method to offer VPNs to
clients of its own, etc.  The method makes it very simple for the
client to use the backbone services.  It is also very scalable and
flexible for the Service Provider, and allows the Service Provider to
add value.
