RE: [EFM] PON Optics Telephone Conference 30th Jan


My perspective on point ii) follows:
The ONU stops forwarding frames at the MAC Control level, this means
that the MAC is idle and not generating frames.
In turn the PCS generates /I/ characters to fill the line.
So the PMD will see serialized /I/ output from the PMA when the ONU is
not gated.

Does this answer the question?
