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.

The PPP Serial Data Transport Protocol (PPP-SDTP) [2] provides a

standard method for encapsulating and transporting serial data over a

PPP link. The PPP Compression Control Protocol [3] provides a

standard method for selecting and using a compression protocol to

provide for data compression on a PPP link.

This document defines a specific set of parameters for these

protocols and an LCP extension to define a standard way of using PPP

for data compression of serial data in Data Circuit-Terminating

Equipment (DCE).

1. Introduction

This document is a product of the TR30.1 ad hoc committee on

compression of synchronous data. It represents a component of a

proposal to use PPP to provide compression of synchronous serial data
