The full title of this PAR is “Standard for Local and Metropolitan Area Networks-Media Access Control (MAC) Bridges and Virtual Bridged Local Area Networks Amendment: Per-Stream Filtering and Policing”.
This standard specifies procedures and managed objects for a bridge to perform frame counting, filtering, policing, and service class selection for a frame based on the particular data stream to which the frame belongs, and a synchronized cyclic time schedule. Policing and filtering functions include the detection and mitigation of disruptive transmissions by other systems in a network, improving the robustness of that network.
The development of standards for Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) have shown that there exist no interoperable standards that enable a bridge to detect whether or not some systems in a network are conforming to behaviors agreed by configuration and/or protocol exchanges. For example, devices that exceed the allocated bandwidth for one stream can prevent the network from achieving the benefits of TSN for any or all streams, not just the misbehaving stream.
