RE: Virtual concatenation: a clarification on sequence numbers
[ post by non-subscriber. with the massive amount of spam, it is easy to

This leads me to another doubt. What is the use of dSQM when
there is no expected sequence number? What is the mismatch? Or is
the dSQM modified to mean something like "If 3-5 consecutive received
sequence numbers on a link are not the same, dSQM is declared" ?
Is it possible for you to send a copy of the revised text which
clarifies these points?

Greg: I was referring to the internal sequence numbers of the virtual
concatenation and not the timeslot numbering...
