It is unclear to us what utility this can possibly have in the context of 802.17, as 802.17 does not define a point to point MAC. Inclusion of a device that might appear superficially similar, to provide a link segment within an 802.17 MAC, is quite a different project which we do not believe we have the expertise to undertake. Any aspects of the proposed P802.1aj standard that would involve specification of SONET regeneration etc., would not be undertaken by 802.1; in this context P802.1aj would serve as an architectural example for other groups such as ITU-T if they chose to undertake such work. ---------- This email is sent from the 802 Executive Committee email reflector.
