The Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE), as described in RFC
2516, mandates a maximum negotiated Maximum Receive Unit (MRU) of
1492. This document outlines a solution that relaxes this restriction and
allows a maximum negotiated MRU greater than 1492 to minimize
fragmentation in next-generation broadband networks. This memo provides information for the Internet community.
This document is a product of the Point-to-Point Protocol Extensions
Working Group of the IETF.
