SP OEQ: What are the five function of a control word ?

1) sequence numbering

2) protocol control information such as FECN,BECN

3) packet padding (to reach min. MPLS packet size)

4)  ?

5) ?




  •                padding small packets

                   carrying control bits of the Layer2 header of the transported protocol

                   preserving the sequence of the transported frames

                   facilitating the correct load balancing of AToM packets in the MPLS backbone

                   facilitating fragmentation and reassembly

    Was it a multiple-choice type of question or you had to spell out all 5 functions?

  • Thanks [:)]

    I had to spell out three out of five fuctions.
