I am not sure how the MP2MP EVC work in Metro Ethernet? As understanding, MP2MP EVC provide the multipoint-to-multipoint circuit through Ethernet network for different end-site of customer base on Provider VLAN ID. So how it can decide which end-site to forward the traffic while it has the a unique provider VLAN ID for all end-sites?
A group of CE's which want to access a Vlan X are trunked till your aggregation and encapsulated into a provider Vlan.
And than Provider Vlan is accessible to all such aggregation points where the QinQ is done.
The same principle of flooding and learning is used to learn all end CE's MAC's even though its using a Provider Vlan.
Hence since the MAC learning table is there, all the devices in the network know exactly where to forward trafic for a end CE even though there is Provider Vlan.
Although the above can be explained better though a diagram, still I believe this will give you a fair idea that all the PE's still need to learn all the end CE's MAC's in a ME network. Thats how forwarding happens.
