This disclosure addresses the inherent flaw in the above arrangement where Client L1 Control-Plane info and NE to NE management communication riding on Communication channels of TDM as overheads (DCC bytes in case of SONET), are not sent across at all as desired in a Circuit Emulation model. As a result, L1 Control-Plane and NE to NE management communication does not work seamlessly across packet (CE) network(s) over "Structure Aware" circuit emulation mode.
