New communication from the OIF
We have received the following communication from the OIF discussing their
desire to build compound VLAN-ID labels. It would be good to look at the
scenarios they describe to examine what our recommendations are.
All input gratefully received.
As always, all communications can be found through the CCAMP alternate Web
site at www.olddog.co.uk/ccamp.htm

Subject: Further Information Regarding VLAN ID Requirements
Dear Adrian and Deborah,
It is our understanding that CCAMP members requested more information to
understand the requirements we have identified for carrying or indicating
large numbers of VLAN IDs in the Label objects in control signaling messages
for Ethernet connections with frame switching granularity. This issue is
more fully described in the attached excerpt from our liaison to CCAMP on
Accordingly, our carrier WG has developed a small set of illustrative
scenarios as attached, for CCAMP's review and information.
We would be strongly interested in CCAMP's conclusions on how these
scenarios can be supported using existing GMPLS methods or if any further
definition might be required.
