RE: Minutes from IEEE 802 Meetings on 64-bit address space


The minutes estimate Ethernet address use at 1 address per port and
logical assignment of MAC addresses. However, many switches are shipping
extra addresses for Link Aggregation and for VLANs. For these and other
it would not surprise me to find that the industry was averaging between 2
4 addresses shipped per port.

Geoff Thompson,

Attached below are unapproved notes (using notes from Bill Lidinsky and I)
for two ad-hoc meetings we held on pending RAC changes on 64-bit address
space. I would appreciate if these notes can be distributed to the RAC for
information and review at its next meeting.
