Abstract

Disclosed is a method to multiplex Local Area Network (LAN) Emulation Data Direct Virtual Circuit Connections (VCCs) between IBM Forwarding Engines (FEs) so that all the LAN Emulation Clients (LECs) on any two FEs can share a single Data Direct VCC instead of having one VCC for each LEC as required by the LAN Emulation Specification Version 1.0.
