I-D ACTION:draft-ietf-l2tpext-l2vpn-06.txt

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Layer Two Tunneling Protocol Extensions Working Group of the IETF.

	Title		: L2VPN Extensions for L2TP
	Author(s)	: W. Luo
	Filename	: draft-ietf-l2tpext-l2vpn-06.txt
	Pages		: 15
	Date		: 2006-1-4
	
The Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) provides a standard method for
   setting up and managing L2TP sessions to tunnel a variety of L2
   protocols.  One of the reference models supported by L2TP describes
   the use of an L2TP session to connect two Layer 2 circuits attached
   to a pair of peering LACs, which is a basic form of Layer 2 Virtual
   Private Network (L2VPN).  This document defines the protocol
   extensions for L2TP to set up different types of L2VPN in a unified
   fashion.

I-D ACTION:draft-ietf-l2tpext-pwe3-ip-01.txt

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Layer Two Tunneling Protocol Extensions Working Group of the IETF.

	Title		: Signaling and Encapsulation for the Transport of IP over L2TPv3
	Author(s)	: C. Pignataro, W. Luo
	Filename	: draft-ietf-l2tpext-pwe3-ip-01.txt
	Pages		: 19
	Date		: 2006-1-6
	
The Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol, Version 3, (L2TPv3) defines a
   protocol for tunneling a variety of data link protocols over IP
   networks.  This document defines the control messaging, signaling
   procedures and encapsulation specifics of how to tunnel IPv4 and IPv6
   packets directly over L2TPv3.

Last Call: 'L2VPN Extensions for L2TP' to Proposed Standard

The IESG has received a request from the Layer Two Tunneling Protocol 
Extensions WG to consider the following document:

- 'L2VPN Extensions for L2TP '
   <draft-ietf-l2tpext-l2vpn-06.txt> as a Proposed Standard

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action.  Please send any comments to the
iesg <at> ietf.org or ietf <at> ietf.org mailing lists by 2006-01-23.

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Layer Two Tunneling Protocol Extensions Working Group of the IETF.

	Title		: ATM over L2TPv3
	Author(s)	: S. Singh, et al.

	Pages		: 21
	Date		: 2006-1-10
	
The Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol, Version 3, (L2TPv3) defines an
   extensible tunneling protocol to transport layer 2 services over IP
   network. This document describes the specifics of how to use the L2TP
   control plane for Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) Pseudowires and
   provides guidelines for transporting various ATM services over an IP
   network.

Carlos Pignataro as WG Secretary


I have asked Carlos play the role of WG secretary to help move some of 
the administrative backlog in l2tpext. His job will be to push the 
buttons and bang on the chairs (and ADs) to move documents through the 
process. Ignacio and Ron are still the judges of WG consensus.

Thanks, and welcome to Carlos.

Technical Summary

L2TPv3 is an evolution to the "Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol" defined in
RFC2661.  L2TP was originally designed to carry more than one link-type
if needed; however, since its origin resided in the pppext WG, the focus
of L2TP was PPP only.  After the formation of the L2TPEXT WG, multiple
proposals were submitted to carry various link-types over L2TP (circa
2000).  L2TPv3 was created as a way to consolidate these ideas into a
common protocol.  The WG decided to organize the documents
hierarchically, with one base L2TPv3 specification comprised of the vast
majority of the protocol and encapsulation definition to be followed by
specific documents for describing each specific link-type.

This document describes the specifics of how to use the
L2TP control plane for Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) Pseudo-Wires and
guidelines for transporting various ATM services over an IP network.
