ISO/IEC/IEEE International Standard - Information technology - Telecommunications and information exchange between systems – Local and metropolitan area networks - Part A: Overview and architecture AMENDMENT 2: Local medium access control (MAC) address usage

An optional local medium access control (MAC) address space structure, known as the Structured Local Address Plan (SLAP), is provided in this amendment to IEEE Std 802®-2014 in order to allow multiple administrations to coexist. This structure designates a range of local MAC addresses for protocols using a Company ID (CID) assigned by the IEEE Registration Authority. Another range of local MAC addresses is designated for assignment by administrators. The amendment recommends a range of local MAC addresses for use by IEEE 802® protocols.
