	Title		: Framework for Pseudo Wire Emulation Edge-to-Edge 
                          (PWE3)

This document describes a framework for Pseudo Wire Emulation
Edge-to-Edge (PWE3).  It discusses the emulation of services (such
Frame Relay, ATM, Ethernet T1, E1, T3, E3 and SONET/SDH) over packet
switched networks (PSNs) using IP or MPLS.  It presents an
architectural framework for pseudo wires (PWs), defines terminology,
specifies the various protocol elements and their functions,
overviews some of the services that will be supported and discusses
how PWs fit into the broader context of protocols.

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.
