Protocols and Networks Archives

August 14, 2010

Ethernet has been said to be a data-link layer protocol. It is true that Ethernet has data-link layer functions. However, it also has network-layer function, i.e., addressing. Therefore, if a network-layer protocol such as the internet protocol (IP) is used over Ethernet, the network-layer function is doubled. This causes protocol complexities, so I think this is a problem to be solved.

I made a business trip to Washington DC for a demo in 22nd GENI Engineering Conference (GEC 22). I explained a newly developed protocol called IPON.
