The layer 2 stuff is covered to some detail in _Digital_Telephony_, which alas, I can't give a cite for right now, as it's at home. Mail me privately, and I'll be glad to. Also, the readers of that NG are likely to have other references to hand; many work for IXC's, LEC's and switch mfr's. Cheers, -- jra -- Jay R.
