IEEE 802.17a-2004 - IEEE Standard for Local and Metropolitan Area Networks: Media Access Control (MAC) Bridges - Amendment 1: Bridging of IEEE Std 802.17
Amendment #1 to IEEE Std 802.1D-2004 The scope of this project is limited to amending 802.1D-2004 to support Bridging of IEEE Std 802.17 MACs. This involves: Adding one subclause to clause 6 of 802.1D describing the service interface mapping between the Internal Sublayer Service and the 802.17 MAC service; Minor changes elsewhere in the document as needed to accommodate support of the additional MAC, including priority mapping in Clause 7 and the PICS Proforma in Annex A. Related Products: IEEE Std 802.17-2004, IEEE 802.1D-2004. The "IEEE Get Program" grants public access to view and download individual PDFs of select standards at no charge.

IEEE 802.17c-2010 - IEEE Standard for Information technology--Telecommunications and information exchange between systems--Local and metropolitan area networks--Specific requirements Part 17: Resilient packet ring (RPR) access method and physical layer specifications Amendment 2: Protected inter-ring connection
A service provider's use of the architecture and protocols of IEEE 802.17 to support ring interconnection through dual station homing, providing 50 ms protection, loop prevention, and load balancing of traffic between rings, is added by this amendment.
IEEE 802.17-2011 - IEEE Standard for Information technology--Telecommunications and information exchange between systems Local and metropolitan area networks--Specific requirements Part 17: Resilient packet ring (RPR) access method and physical layer specifications
This standard defines the medium access control characteristics, physical layer interface methods and layer management parameters for the resilient packet ring (RPR) access method for ring topologies. A set of protocols for detecting and initializing the shared ring configuration, recovering from failures, and regulating fair access to the shared medium are also described. Specifications are provided for interface to a number of physical layers, supporting data rates up to 10 Gb/s. System considerations and management information base (MIB) specifications are also provided in this standard.
