|Clause title:||Architecture of AVB networks|
Rationale for revision
IEEE Std 802.1D is being withdrawn and a reference in this standard requires maintenance. The technical functionality of IEEE Std 802.1D has been completely subsumed by IEEE Std 802.1Q.
On page 8, the paragraph above the figure, change the first sentence to, "The non-AV Bridges shown in Figure 5-2 could be conformant IEEE 802.1Q Bridges that do not meet the minimum requirements of the AVB profile in use in the network, or they could be nonconformant bridges that forward frames addressed to the reserved addresses in Table 8-1, Table 8-2, and Table 8-3 of IEEE Std 802.1Q."
Impact on existing networks
Since IEEE Std 802.1D is completely subsumed by IEEE Std 802.1Q, there is no expected impact on existing networks.
