RE: Interface reality check

Title: RE: Interface reality check


Your suggestion amounts to mapping L2 payloads into another L2 payload
(i.e. Ethernet MAC frames) prior to mapping into SONET/SDH. This would
make the SONET/SDH ANSI/ITU standards activity dependent on IEEE.
Such a cross-coupling would hinder progress in both IEEE and ANSI/ITU
and is therefore undesirable.
