Technical Summary Intended status: Informational This document describes a set of Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) Attribute Value Pair (AVP) extensions designed to carry the subscriber Access Line identification and characterization information that arrives at the Broadband Remote Access Server (BRAS) with LAC functionality. It also describes a mechanism to report connection speed changes, after the initial connection speeds are sent during session establishment. The primary purpose of this document is to provide a reference for DSL equipment vendors wishing to interoperate with other vendors' products. The L2TP AVPs defined in this document are applicable to both L2TPv2 and L2TPv3. Working Group Summary This document encodes information specific to the DSL Broadband community, and documented in DSL Forum (now Broadband Forum) documents. As with other PPPoE, DHCP, and RADIUS specifications that carry similar information, this document is being shephered individually rather than being a WG document. Feedback on this document was requested on the Ancp and L2tpext WG mailing lists. <http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/l2tpext/current/msg01169.html> <http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/ancp/current/msg00537.html> Document Quality The document was reviewed by the l2tpext and ANCP WG. There is at least one known plus two planned implementations of the protocol. Personnel Mark Townsley is the Sponsoring AD.
