P802.1CBdb – FRER Extended Stream Identification Functions

This amendment specifies procedures and managed objects that add new stream identification functions. Additionally this amendment addresses errors and clarifications.

Stream identification is required by an increasing number of traffic management mechanisms implemented in Layer 2: ingress policing, traffic scheduling, congestion management, mapping to traffic classes, that make Ethernet networks suitable for a growing number of applications. Current stream identification methods defined in IEEE Std 802.1CB are insufficient for some of these applications.
