Re: [802.3ae] Wan Interface Sublayer


The 10GbE WAN PHY in internally rate controlled.  It uses a 64/66 block 
encoding to map into the WIS overhead.  The 10GbE WAN PHY is designed to be 
compatible with SONET and SDH.

10GbE over SONET is not internally rate controlled.  It depending on the 
coding scheme, it may be one that was rejected by P802.3ae.  It is not 
compatible with SDH.

Thank you,
