Your description is correct. If you're asking how the WAN PHY will react to
Line/Path AIS, the pointer processor will detect AIS-P and the all ones
signal will be passed from the WIS up to the 66/64 decoder, which will lose
sync (e.g. LOD defect, Loss Of Delineation), then the MAC will see the
ReceiveDataValid line inactive & discard frames.

Subject: Re: WIS OH
Could you help me to understand how WAN-PHY and ELTE would react on
SONET AIS (Alarm Indicaton Signal)?
When we have cable cut in SONET infrastructure, the SONET side of
the ELTE will receive either Line-AIS or Path-AIS.
Line-AIS: all '1' in Line OH and SPE payload.
generated by the regenerator who detect upstream cable cut.
detected by the last 3 bits in K2 (at least 3 consecutive '111')
Path-AIS: all '1' in AU pointer and SPE payload.
generated by LTE who detect upstream cable cut.
detected by the all '1' in H1&H2 at least 3 consecutive frames.
