Title : A Core MPLS IP VPN Link Broadcast And Virtual Router

An IPVPN consists of many routers, some physically discrete and
some virtual, housed in a Provider Edge router. The problem that
presents itself is that these virtual routers need to find each
other over a virtual topology and they need to send broadcast
datagrams as mandated in routing protocols [such as the neighbor
discovery datagram and routing updates in OSPF, the routing
updates in RIPV2 etc] and user data over this virtual topology.
This memo presents an approach for solving these problems.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
