|Clause title:||Normative references|
Rationale for revision
IEEE Std 802.1D is being withdrawn and a number of references in this standard require maintenance; either deletion, replacement with 802.1Q or modification. The technical functionality of IEEE Std 802.1D has been completely subsumed by IEEE Std 802.1Q.
1. Clause 2, page 14 - delete the normative reference, and add to the Bibliography instead (Annex A) 2. Clause 11, page 26 - delete the reference 3. Clause 11.1, page 27 - replace "Annex F of IEEE Std 802.1D-2004" with "Annex O of IEEE Std 802.1Q-2018" 4. Clause 11.1, Note 4, page 28 - replace the reference of IEEE Std 802.1D to a bibliography reference (e.g. IEEE Std 802.1D[B5]) 5. Clause 14.2, Note 2, page 42 - replace the reference of IEEE Std 802.1D to a bibliography reference (e.g. IEEE Std 802.1D[B5]) Note: the notes with 802.1D referenced are providing a historical perspective and shall be left in 802.1AC, but the reference will be to a Bibliography entry, not a Normative reference.
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.
