In the deployment of BGP/MPLS VPN,the PE(Provider Edge)Device should
maintain all the VPN routes of the VPNs which it belong to.When there 
are many VPNs converged by a PE,and the capacity of PE is relevant
limited,then the bottleneck will be encountered.Another problem is 
that the current BGP/MPLS VPN model is something of a 'Plane Modle'
where the demand of the performance of the PE device are all the 
same no matter which layer the PE device is belongs to.However,the 
typical network is 'Core-Convergence-Access(Edge)' model,and the 
performance of the device is superior in Core Layer and inferior in 
Access Layer,and the scale of network is large in Access Layer and 
small in Core Layer,the routes are converged in every layer,so in 
current 'Plane Modle',when PE device push to the edge layer,it has 
to maintain more VPN routes,this makes it difficult to extend the PE
device to edge layer.This document defines an model of Hierarchy of 
Provider Edge Device in BGP/MPLS VPN,where Hierarchy of Provider 
Edge Device can be composed of several device and every device take 
on the different part,partake the function of the former 
concentrative PE,we call this model 'Hierarchy Model',In this model
the demand of performance in Routing and Switching is strict to the 
PE device in High layer,loose to the PE device in edge layer.
   One HoPE can be composed of a SPE and UPES connected to the SPE, 
   or be composed of a high-level SPE and HoPEs connected the high 
   level SPE and and build up a new HoPE.This build is called nesting 
   of HoPE,and this kind of nesting can be done for many times.Thus the 
   former HoPE connect to the high-level SPE as a role of UPE,and the 
   new HoPE can connect a single UPE too.
