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 Synchronous Optical

Network (SONET) and Synchronous Digital Heirarchy (SDH) 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 high speed private point-to-point

links, such as intra-campus single-mode fiber which may already be

installed and unused. Because the PPP encapsulation has relatively

low overhead, it is anticipated that significantly higher throughput

can be attained compared to other SONET/SDH payload mappings, at a

significantly lower cost for line termination equipment.
