Re: WAN PHY name

Jay, Martin,

I believe that Ethernet Over SONET represents a specific proposal to IEEE
P802.3ae to map Ethernet to SONET. Two problems with this:

1) It is not a proposal endorsed by a majority of IEEE P802.3ae members
interested in meeting the WAN objectives, nevermind 75%;

2) It is not applicable to supporting native Ethernet over the WAN in the
absence of SONET/SDH. 

Best Regards,
