RE: Clause 49 WIS Status Register doubts

Title: Clause 49 WIS Status Register doubts



In answer to your questions:


  1. The WIS Link Status bit (2.1.12 in Table 45-12) is described in Section of the WIS clause, and relates to the WIS_SIGNAL.indicate service primitive described in Section 50.2.4. As the editorial note in clause 45 indicates, a reference to Section will eventually be inserted on page 181.
  2. The declaration of Local Fault by the WIS is covered by Section; this section describes the various events that trigger a reporting of local fault to the PCS as well as to layer management.


Hope this answers your questions.

Has there been any further deliberation on what
"WIS Link Status" represents? (Table 45-12 on
pg. 181; bit 2.1.12)

Also, what does the Fault bit(WIS detected LF;
bit 2.1.10) constitute? I.e, what all leads to
declaring a LF?
