We report the first successful experiment on Point-to-Multipoint (P2MP) VLAN path establishment on the overlay-model-based GMPLS-controlled wide area Ethernet. To support the overlay model, P2MP VLAN path signaling with egress output port indication is proposed and implemented. It is confirmed that our extended RSVP-TE software can correctly establish P2MP VLAN paths in the overlay-model network.
