   This memo documents a way of carrying IPv6 packets over MAPOS
   networks.  This document is NOT the product of an IETF working group
   nor is it a standards track document.  It has not necessarily
   benefited from the widespread and in-depth community review that
   standards track documents receive.


   Multiple Access Protocol over SONET/SDH (MAPOS) is a high-speed
   link-layer protocol that provides multiple access capability over a
   Synchronous Optical NETwork/Synchronous Digital Hierarchy

   This document specifies the frame format for encapsulating an IPv6
   datagram in a MAPOS frame.  It also specifies the method of forming
   IPv6 interface identifiers, the method of detecting duplicate
   addresses, and the format of the Source/Target Link-layer Addresses
   option field used in IPv6 Neighbor Discovery messages.
