PPP over ISDN

Status of this Memo

This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the

Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for

improvements. Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet

Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state

and status of this protocol. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

Abstract

The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) [1] provides a standard method for

transporting multi-protocol datagrams over point-to-point links.

This document describes the use of PPP over Integrated Services

Digital Network (ISDN) switched circuits.

This document is the product of the Point-to-Point Protocol Working

Group of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). Comments should

be submitted to the ietf-ppp@merit.edu mailing list.

Applicability

This specification is intended for those implementations which desire

to use the PPP encapsulation over ISDN point-to-point links. PPP is

not designed for multi-point or multi-access environments.

"It is clear that there is never likely to be a single, monolithic,

worldwide ISDN." [3] The goal of this document is to describe a few

common implementations, chosen from the current wide variety of

alternatives, in an effort to promote interoperability.

RFC 1618 PPP over ISDN May 1994

1. Introduction

PPP was designed as a standard method of communicating over point-

to-point links. Initial deployment has been over short local lines,

leased lines, and plain-old-telephone-service (POTS) using modems.

As new packet services and higher speed lines are introduced, PPP is

easily deployed in these environments as well.
