Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS), also known as Transparent LAN
Service, and Virtual Private Switched Network service, is a useful
Service Provider offering.  The service offered is a Layer 2 VPN;
however, in the case of VPLS, the customers in the VPN are connected
by a multipoint network, in contrast to the usual Layer 2 VPNs, which
are point-to-point in nature.

This document describes the functions required to offer VPLS, and
proposes a mechanism for signaling a VPLS, as well as for forwarding
VPLS frames across a packet switched network.

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.
