Re: RFC 4638 and Teksavvy

said by Inssomniak:

The PPPoE server would have to be configured for MTU max of 1500 byte packets, Im sure its not. The whole path would have to support the oversized packet size.

Yes, it would; if the client indicates it has RFC4638 support. That's the whole point. When the path from the ISP to the DSLAM is all GigE/10Gb Ethernet it would not be an issue.

Is this the case anywhere? That TSI or any ISP using bell last mile gets GigE or better right to the DSLAM?

Im under the impression that this RFC can never work with Bell right now.

The ISP side has been Ethernet for many many years. The FTTN remotes are Ethernet fed. They're using Juniper gear for BRAS' so those should be running 10Gb Ethernet interfaces by now. So yes in theory this is possible.
