Re: [802.3ae] Gig Ethernet over SONET

Charles, Bruce,

This is no longer called EoS but GFP (Generic Framing
Procedure). T1X1 has approved GFP, but is still working on
extentions. ITU-T has copied the work from T1X1 into the
document G.gfp. Their objective is to have approval in October
2001. ETSI will refer to ITU-T.
