The full title of this PAR is “Draft Standard for Local and metropolitan area networks — Media Access Control (MAC) Service Definition”.
The scope of this standard is to define the Media Access Control (MAC) Service provided by all IEEE 802® MACs, and the Internal Sublayer Service (ISS) provided within MAC Bridges, in abstract terms of the following:
- Their semantics, primitive actions, and events; and
- The parameters of, interrelationship between, and valid sequences of these actions and events.
A common MAC service definition standard within IEEE 802 is an important building block that will help ensure consistency across MACs, and consistency of MACs with IEEE 802 Bridging technology. This standard will be of benefit to manufacturers of conformant LAN equipment, their customers, and users of LANs or LAN services that are based on such equipment.
This project makes technical and editorial corrections and incorporates additional MAC technologies that are able to support the internal sublayer service (ISS).
