Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

According to <a href=”http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3293″>this source</a> the additional bits are called a “pad” or “padding”
From the site:

<pre>Pad
After adjacency has been established the minimum length of the
data field of an Ethernet packet is 46 bytes. If necessary,
padding should be added such that it meets the minimum Ethernet
frame size. This padding should be bytes of zero and is not to be
considered part of the GSMP message.</pre>

The site also has additional information about ATM protocol that you might find interesting.
Good Luck!
