Update in 02 version

Update in 02-Version

This is a requirement draft, not a solution draft.

The 00-version has been presented in IETF78 July 2010.

The 02-version was published in October 2010.

Update in 02 version1

Update in 02-Version

Add Section 3.4. Generic E-Tree Service

Emphasize the need to support Multiple Roots.

Emphasize the need to support all the following traffic flows

Ethernet Unicast from Root to Leaf

Ethernet Unicast from Leaf to Root

Ethernet Unicast from Root to Root

Ethernet Broadcast/Multicast from Root to Roots & Leafs

Ethernet Broadcast/Multicast from Leaf to Roots

3


Update in 02 version2

Update in 02-Version

Section 4.2. Leaf-to-Leaf Communication Restriction

Explicitly state “A problem occurs when there are two or more PEs with both Root AC and Leaf AC”

Simplify the diagram and add examples in order to explain the problem precisely

Mention possibility to get around the problem without extension to current standard VPLS but come with complexity and deployment constraints

4


Update in 02 version3

Update in 02-Version

Add Appendix A. Frequently Asked Questions

Are E-Tree requirements addressed in the VPMS requirement draft? [Short Answer: For generic E-Tree service, VPMS will not be able to meet the requirements.]

Are there any potential deployment scenarios for a “VPLS Only” solution? [Short Answer: There are potential deployment scenarios for a “VPLS Only” solution. Three examples are given.]

Some other minor wording and format changes.

Recap the problem

Recap the Problem

Use VPLS to emulate an E-Tree service over a MPLS network

+---------+ +---------+

| PE1 | | PE2 |

+---+ | +---+ | | +---+ | +---+

|CE1+-----AC1----+--+ | | | | +--+----AC3-----+CE3|

+---+ (Root AC) | | V | | Ethernet | | V | | (Root AC) +---+

| | S +--+-----PW-----+--+ S | |

+---+ | | I | | | | I | | +---+

|CE2+-----AC2----+--+ | | | | +--+----AC4-----+CE4|

+---+ (Leaf AC) | +---+ | | +---+ | (Leaf AC) +---+

+---------+ +---------+

When PE2 receives a frame from PE1 via the Ethernet PW,

- PE2 does not know whether the ingress AC is a Leaf AC or not

- PE2 does not have sufficient information to enforce the Leaf-to-Leaf

communication restriction

Examples:

- CE2 sends a Broadcast/Multicast frame to PE1 via AC2

- CE2 sends a Unicast frame to PE1 via AC2, destination address in

Ethernet header equal to CE4's MAC address

Recap the requirements

Recap the Requirements

Functional Requirements

MUST prohibit communication between any two Leaf ACs.

MUST allow multiple Root ACs in a VPLS instance.

MUST allow Root AC and Leaf AC of a VPLS instance co-exist on any PE.

Backward Compatibility

SHOULD minimise impact on existing VPLS solution.

SHOULD allow a VPLS instance composed of both PEs supporting the solution and PEs not supporting it.

Mef e tree support in vpls

MEF E-Tree Support in VPLS

More network operators have expressed their need for a VPLS-based MEF E-Tree solution.

This draft is intended to be a requirement reference for potential solutions.

We request this be adopted as a Working Group Draft.

Thank you very much.
