802.1Qdt – Priority-based Flow Control Enhancements
This amendment specifies procedures and managed objects for automated Priority-based Flow Control (PFC) headroom calculation and Media Access Control Security (MACsec) protection of PFC frames, using the existing Precision Time Protocol (PTP) and enhancements to the Data Center Bridging Capability Exchange protocol (DCBX).
This amendment places emphasis on the requirements for low latency and lossless transmission in large-scale and geographically dispersed data centers.
This amendment also addresses errors of the existing IEEE Std 802.1Q functionality.
