Technical Summary As part of providing wireline access to the 5G Core (5GC), deployed wireline networks carry user data between 5G residential gateways and the 5G Access Gateway Function (AGF). The encapsulation method specified in this document supports the multiplexing of traffic for multiple PDU sessions within a VLAN delineated access circuit, permits legacy equipment in the data path to snoop certain packet fields, carries 5G QoS information associated with the packet data, and provides efficient encoding. Working Group Summary AD-sponsoring this document for 5G/BBF extensions to PPPoE. Consulted with intarea-wg chairs and one other IETF member who also participates in BBF. Last call of -04 passed with minor comments incorporated into -05. Document Quality There are no known implementations at this point. A number of vendors (Juniper, Nokia, Huawei, ZTE, Intel) have indicated interest in the specification in the BBF. Personnel Document Shepherd: Erik Kline Responsible Area Director: Erik Kline Designated Expert for new registry: Donald Eastlake. IESG Note Creates a registry for some PPPoE values where there arguably should have been a registry before. IANA Note This document creates an Expert Review IANA Registry for PPP over Ethernet version numbers. Any expert(s) appointed for this registry should be knowledgeable in PPP and Ethernet. Donald Eastlake has volunteered to be an Expert.
