VPLS is a point-to-multipoint or multipoint-to-multipoint technology. The primary goal of the VPLS architecture is connecting two or more CE devices, leveraging Ethernet bridging techniques. This is accomplished as an overlay on an MPLS network. VPLS is a multipoint technology that runs over MPLS P networks. VPLS is defined in two RFCs: 4761 and 4762.
General Considerations for VPLS
The P network simulates an 802.1 Ethernet bridge so that each Metro Ethernet EMS will be similar to a VLAN. What makes VPLS different from other technologies is the way that is handles issues such as . . .
