Abstract

The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) [1] provides a standard method for transporting multi-protocol datagrams over point-to-point links. PPP defines an extensible Link Control Protocol, and proposes a family of Network Control Protocols for establishing and configuring different network-layer protocols.

Abstract

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

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

defines an extensible Link Control Protocol, and proposes a family of

Network Control Protocols for establishing and configuring different

network-layer protocols.

This document describes a new Network level protocol (from the PPP

point of view), PPP Serial Data Transport Protocol, that provides

encapsulation and an associated control protocol for transporting

serial data streams over a PPP link. This protocol was developed for

the purpose of using PPP's many features to provide a standard method

for synchronous data compression. The encapsulation uses a header

structure based on that of the ITU-T Recommendation V.120 [2].
