What is the difference between RFC 1483 bridge, RFC 1483 routed, RFC 2684 bridge, IP over ATM (IPoA) and RFC 1483 MER? Why do some CPE manufacturers support all of these protocols if, for example, IPoA is an application of RFC 1483 MER?

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

The difference is based on various algorithms passed and/or understood by a switch. Some manufacturers have software that will understand all of the various protocols, while some support only select few. The more sophisticated equipment understands a wide variety.

The difference is they have different formats.
