Re: Comments on LMP draft version 04
you would have seen that the LMP i-d uses the correct term
"Verify Transport Mechanism" it is really what it refers to
"how the test messages are transported between transport
plane interfaces" thus here we get into a case where the
transport plane technology provides an overhead where
"data" (this is also consistent with the term DCC =
Data Communication Channel) can be transported, therefore
data plane means here the transport plane (= paylaod +
overhead for technologies such as sdh/oth) where the
overhead can clearly transport IP packets (using for
instance PPP in HDLC-like framing, see RFC-1662), all
this in addition to the other transport mechanisms
described in section 14.8
hope this clarifies but it seems as said before that
most of these questions raised from the terminology,
