Since Adam brought it up (PBB EVPN), incase y'all didn't know and are
interested, I rcv'd this free webinar invite and thought I'd pass it on... I
don't know much about evpn and pbb...


This webinar presents a technical overview of Ethernet VPN (E-VPN) and
Provider Backbone Bridging E-VPN (PBB-EVPN).

These emerging solutions address the requirements of Carrier Ethernet and
Data Center Interconnect market segments. Currently under standardization in
the IETF, these technologies introduce advanced multi-homing options,
support for multi-pathing and user-defined BGP policy capabilities to
Ethernet L2VPNs.They also provide enhanced auto-discovery capabilities with
low-touch provisioning and support for optimal unicast and multicast
delivery. The webinar is intended for service providers or enterprises
looking to deploy next generation L2VPN solutions for Carrier Ethernet or
Data Center Interconnect services. This is a session that assumes
familiarity with MPLS-based L2VPNs and BGP.

Yes EVPN and especially PBB frontend to EVPN is a major leap in how we'll
provide the L2VPN services. Hopefully it's going to support PIC Edge and
Core soon. 
Though this setup is pretty new and I'm afraid I cannot afford to enable it
for our production services yet. 

Anyways my question was regarding the "old school" VPLS as we all do it
right now and LDP vs BGP signaling in particular. 
I'd like to find out which one do you folks prefer and why.

VPLS multihoming is the major up-shot of BGP-VPLS in my opinion.  Saves the
need for xSTP within your network when dual-homing a customer to multiple
PEs which makes everybody happy.
