RE: [802.3ae] Gig Ethernet over SONET
Thanks for your information. Some one also referred me to ITU
work on X.86 (Etherner over LAPS), LAPS stands for Link Access
Procedure over SDH. What is the relationship between GFP and LAPS???

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.
