IESG Note

   This memo documents a way of carrying IPv6 packets over MAPOS

Abstract

   Multiple Access Protocol over SONET/SDH (MAPOS) is a high-speed

   link-layer protocol that provides multiple access capability over a

   Synchronous Optical NETwork/Synchronous Digital Hierarchy

   (SONET/SDH).

   This document specifies the frame format for encapsulating an IPv6

   datagram in a MAPOS frame.  It also specifies the method of forming

   IPv6 interface identifiers, the method of detecting duplicate

   addresses, and the format of the Source/Target Link-layer Addresses

   option field used in IPv6 Neighbor Discovery messages.
