Definition of provider bridging
IEEE 802 Architecture list, hosted by 802.1:
or email firstname.lastname@example.org for help.
We have an editorial comment in the draft requesting that we add a
definition for provider bridging. My suggestion is to add the following
provider bridging: A network using that uses Provider Bridges to offer
customer protocol transparent connectivity. See: IEEE 802.1Q-2011.”
For reference, 802.Q-2011 defines the following (among other terms)
3.138 Provider Bridge: An S-VLAN Bridge or a Provider Edge Bridge.
3.139 Provider Bridged Network: A network using Provider Bridges to
offer customer protocol transparent connectivity.
3.140 Provider Edge Bridge: A system comprising a single S-VLAN
component and one or more CVLAN components implemented in accordance
with Clause 5 of IEEE Std 802.1Q.
