ABSTRACT
An encyclopedia entry about "X.86" is presented. It is a physical interface sublayer (PHY) for 802.3 Ethernet Media Access Control (MAC) frames which offers the encapsulation of 802.3 MAC frames in a sublayer-level addresses and control frame, LAPS. It enables 802.3 Ethernet switches and Hubs to interface directly with SDH transmission infrastructure for point-to-point data-link communications over Wide Area Networks (WAN).
