Customer interface presentation for each of the interface speed. GbE or 10GbE with granularity of VC4-nv where n = 1 to 7 for GbE and 1 to 64 for 10GbE
For fiber hand-off, is it multimode, or single mode, or support both? SMOF
Half duplex / full duplex? Full Duplex
D. Frame Type Supported
Maximum Frame Size supported (Please state the maximum frame size for each interface / bandwidth if there is any difference, e.g. 1536 bytes for Ethernet/Fast Ethernet, 9216 bytes for GE) 9224bytes for GbE and 10GbE
802.1q transparency (are both VLAN tagged and untagged frames transport unchanged) - please state if it can support only under certain conditions, or service offerings AJC currently offers EPL only

802.1d / 802.1w / 802.1s spanning tree BPDUs transparency
Is MAC address learning performed in your network? Please specify if there is any difference under different scenarios.
If there is MAC learning , what is the maximum number of MAC addresses supported for each customer circuit?
What is the maximum jumbo frame size supported? Please specify if there is any difference for different port / bandwidth / configurations.
Transparency to multicast / broadcast frames
Transparency to Cisco CDP & VTP protocols
Transparency to 802.1ad frames (ethertypes supported: 0x9100, 0x88a8 and 0xFFFF?)
Support Ethertypes swapping? E.g. accept 8100 from one end and swap to 9100 to another end

How is one customer's network separated from other customer's network on your network? Separate VC-4's
If shared network is used
How is the service protected against broadcast storm from other customers? EPL is point to point dedicated bandwidth.
How is the service protected against attacks from other customers sharing the same network? EPL is point to point dedicated bandwidth.
F. Service Level Agreement
Please specify the details on provisioning SLA if any. Please also specify the standard provisioning lead-time. SDH SLA's
Please specify the details on availability SLA if any e.g. 99.9% SDH SLA's
