Folks, we still only have 6 responses to the VCCV User Survey. Time is running out. The deadline for submissions is February 25th.
It is important that we get as many participants as possible to ensure fair representation in any future PW Control Word and VCCV related work in the PWE3 working group.
Per the direction of the PWE3 working group, beginning in IETF77 and reinforced in IETF78, the PWE3 working group is conducting a Service Provider implementation survey related to:
- Pseudowire Encapsulations
- Control Word Support
- Control Word Use
- VCCV Control Channel Support
- VCCV Control Channel Use
This is a short survey directed toward Service Providers who currently operate networks using any of the defined PWE3 encapsulations. The results of this survey will be used to determine the direction of the Control Word support in current and future encapsulations as well as solutions to VCCV interoperability challenges.
We sincerely urge all service providers to participate. We ask that all equipment providers encourage participation by their Service Provider customers. The more feedback we receive, the better view of the existing network we can have on which to base going-forward direction.
If you have any questions, regarding the survey, especially of a technical nature, please contact me. If you have non-technical questions, feel free to reach out to the PWE3 WG chairs and myself.
The results of the survey will be aggregated and shared at a high level. No low-level details of network implementations will be shared. All participant’s responses will remain private, if not anonymous.
All responses will require a valid email address to help ensure the survey’s validity.
