Full Description

Scope

The amendment will provide an optional local MAC address space structure to allow multiple administrations to coexist. This structure will designate a range of local MAC addresses for protocols using a Company ID (CID) assigned by the IEEE Registration Authority. Another range of local MAC addresses will be designated for assignment by local administrators. The amendment will recommend a range of local MAC addresses for use by IEEE 802 protocols. This amendment will also correct minor errors, ambiguities, omissions and inconsistencies including clarifying the use of CID in protocol identifiers and context dependent identifiers.

Purpose

This standard serves as the foundation for the family of IEEE 802 standards published by IEEE for local area networks (LANs), metropolitan area networks (MANs), personal area networks (PANs), and regional area networks (RANs).

Abstract

Amendment Standard - Active. An optional local medium access control (MAC) address space structure, known as the Structured Local Address Plan (SLAP), is provided in this amendment to IEEE Std 802¿¿-2014 in order to allow multiple administrations to coexist. This structure designates a range of local MAC addresses for protocols using a Company ID (CID) assigned by the IEEE Registration Authority. Another range of local MAC addresses is designated for assignment by administrators. The amendment recommends a range of local MAC addresses for use by IEEE 802¿¿ protocols.(The PDF of this standard is available at no cost to you compliments of the IEEE GET program http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/servlet/opac?punumber=8016707.
