Just a reminder that the advisory public review period on Addendum an
(MS/TP Extended Frames) ends next week. The proposal can be found
corresponding proposal to define IPv6 formats for MS/TP frames can be
I hope folks will enter their comments to Addendum an in advance of the
next meeting. Previous topics that have come up in discussion in the
MS/TP WG include:
- Allowing MS/TP extended frames with length < 501 octets
- Allowing for other Ethernet frame types (other than IPv6) to be specified
I wonder myself whether the spec language can be made clearer by saying
that all reserved Frame Types > 7 will use the Extended Data CRC?
I look forward to your comments.

Title: Transmission of IPv6 over MS/TP Networks
Creation date: 2011-10-10
WG ID: Individual Submission
Number of pages: 14
MS/TP (Master-Slave/Token-Passing) is a contention-free access method
for the TIA-485-A physical layer that is used extensively in building
automation networks. This document describes the frame format for
transmission of IPv6 packets and the method of forming link-local and
statelessly autoconfigured IPv6 addresses on MS/TP networks.
