As part of providing wireline access to the 5G Core (5GC), deployed
wireline networks carry user data between 5G residential gateways and
the 5G Access Gateway Function (AGF). The encapsulation method
specified in this document supports the multiplexing of traffic for
multiple PDU sessions within a VLAN-delineated access circuit,
permits legacy equipment in the data path to inspect certain packet
fields, carries 5G QoS information associated with the packet data,
and provides efficient encoding. It achieves this by specific points
of similarity with the Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE)
data packet encapsulation (RFC 2516).
