Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) and IEC (the International Electrotechnical

Commission) form the specialized system for worldwide standardization. National bodies that are members of

ISO or IEC participate in the development of International Standards through technical committees established

by the respective organization to deal with particular fields of technical activity. ISO and IEC technical

committees collaborate in fields of mutual interest. Other international organizations, governmental and non-

governmental, in liaison with ISO and IEC, also take part in the work. In the field of information technology, ISO

and IEC have established a joint technical committee, ISO/IEC JTC 1.

IEEE Standards documents are developed within the IEEE Societies and the Standards Coordinating

Committees of the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Standards Board. The IEEE develops its standards

through a consensus development process, approved by the American National Standards Institute, which

brings together volunteers representing varied viewpoints and interests to achieve the final product. Volunteers

are not necessarily members of the Institute and serve without compensation. While the IEEE administers the

process and establishes rules to promote fairness in the consensus development process, the IEEE does not

independently evaluate, test, or verify the accuracy of any of the information contained in its standards.

The main task of ISO/IEC JTC 1 is to prepare International Standards. Draft International Standards adopted

by the joint technical committee are circulated to national bodies for voting. Publication as an International

Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the national bodies casting a vote.

Attention is called to the possibility that implementation of this standard may require the use of subject matter

covered by patent rights. By publication of this standard, no position is taken with respect to the existence or

validity of any patent rights in connection therewith. ISO/IEEE is not responsible for identifying essential

patents or patent claims for which a license may be required, for conducting inquiries into the legal validity or

scope of patents or patent claims or determining whether any licensing terms or conditions provided in

connection with submission of a Letter of Assurance or a Patent Statement and Licensing Declaration Form, if

any, or in any licensing agreements are reasonable or non-discriminatory. Users of this standard are expressly

advised that determination of the validity of any patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, is

entirely their own responsibility. Further information may be obtained from ISO or the IEEE Standards

Association.

ISO/IEC/IEEE 8802-A was prepared by the LAN/MAN of the IEEE Computer Society (as IEEE 802 -2014). It

was adopted by Joint Technical Committee ISO/IEC JTC 1, Information technology, Subcommittee SC 6,

Telecommunications and information exchange between systems, in parallel with its approval by the ISO/IEC

national bodies, under the “fast-track procedure” defined in the Partner Standards Development Organization

cooperation agreement between ISO and IEEE. IEEE is responsible for the maintenance of this document

with participation and input from ISO/IEC national bodies.

Abstract: This standard provides an overview to the family of IEEE 802 standards. It describes

the reference models for the IEEE 802 standards and explains the relationship of these standards

to the higher layer protocols; it provides a standard for the structure of IEEE 802 MAC addresses;

it provides a standard for identification of public, private, prototype, and standard protocols; it

specifies an object identifier hierarchy used within IEEE 802 for uniform allocation of object

identifiers used in IEEE 802 standards; and it specifies a method for higher layer protocol

identification.

Important Notices and Disclaimers Concerning IEEE Standards Documents

IEEE documents are made available for use subject to important notices and legal disclaimers. These notices

and disclaimers, or a reference to this page, appear in all standards and may be found under the heading

“Important Notice” or “Important Notices and Disclaimers Concerning IEEE Standards Documents.”

Notice and Disclaimer of Liability Concerning the Use of IEEE Standards
Documents

IEEE Standards documents (standards, recommended practices, and guides), both full-use and trial-use, are

developed within IEEE Societies and the Standards Coordinating Committees of the IEEE Standards

Association (“IEEE-SA”) Standards Board. IEEE (“the Institute”) develops its standards through a

consensus development process, approved by the American National Standards Institute (“ANSI”), which

brings together volunteers representing varied viewpoints and interests to achieve the final product.

Volunteers are not necessarily members of the Institute and participate without compensation from IEEE.

While IEEE administers the process and establishes rules to promote fairness in the consensus development

process, IEEE does not independently evaluate, test, or verify the accuracy of any of the information or the

soundness of any judgments contained in its standards.

IEEE does not warrant or represent the accuracy or content of the material contained in its standards, and

expressly disclaims all warranties (express, implied and statutory) not included in this or any other

document relating to the standard, including, but not limited to, the warranties of: merchantability; fitness

for a particular purpose; non-infringement; and quality, accuracy, effectiveness, currency, or completeness

of material. In addition, IEEE disclaims any and all conditions relating to: results; and workmanlike effort.

IEEE standards documents are supplied “AS IS” and “WITH ALL FAULTS.”

Use of an IEEE standard is wholly voluntary. The existence of an IEEE standard does not imply that there

are no other ways to produce, test, measure, purchase, market, or provide other goods and services related to

the scope of the IEEE standard. Furthermore, the viewpoint expressed at the time a standard is approved and

issued is subject to change brought about through developments in the state of the art and comments

received from users of the standard.

In publishing and making its standards available, IEEE is not suggesting or rendering professional or other

services for, or on behalf of, any person or entity nor is IEEE undertaking to perform any duty owed by any

other person or entity to another. Any person utilizing any IEEE Standards document, should rely upon his

or her own independent judgment in the exercise of reasonable care in any given circumstances or, as

appropriate, seek the advice of a competent professional in determining the appropriateness of a given IEEE

standard.
IN NO EVENT SHALL IEEE BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL,
EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO:
PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES; LOSS OF USE, DATA, OR PROFITS; OR
BUSINESS INTERRUPTION) HOWEVER CAUSED AND ON ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY,
WHETHER IN CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE OR
OTHERWISE) ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE PUBLICATION, USE OF, OR RELIANCE
UPON ANY STANDARD, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE AND
REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH DAMAGE WAS FORESEEABLE.

Translations

The IEEE consensus development process involves the review of documents in English only. In the event

that an IEEE standard is translated, only the English version published by IEEE should be considered the

approved IEEE standard.
Official statements

A statement, written or oral, that is not processed in accordance with the IEEE-SA Standards Board

Operations Manual shall not be considered or inferred to be the official position of IEEE or any of its

committees and shall not be considered to be, or be relied upon as, a formal position of IEEE. At lectures,

symposia, seminars, or educational courses, an individual presenting information on IEEE standards shall

make it clear that his or her views should be considered the personal views of that individual rather than the

formal position of IEEE.
Comments on standards

Comments for revision of IEEE Standards documents are welcome from any interested party, regardless of

membership affiliation with IEEE. However, IEEE does not provide consulting information or advice

pertaining to IEEE Standards documents. Suggestions for changes in documents should be in the form of a

proposed change of text, together with appropriate supporting comments. Since IEEE standards represent a

consensus of concerned interests, it is important that any responses to comments and questions also receive

the concurrence of a balance of interests. For this reason, IEEE and the members of its societies and

Standards Coordinating Committees are not able to provide an instant response to comments or questions

except in those cases where the matter has previously been addressed. For the same reason, IEEE does not

respond to interpretation requests. Any person who would like to participate in revisions to an IEEE

standard is welcome to join the relevant IEEE working group.
Comments on standards should be submitted to the following address:
Secretary, IEEE-SA Standards Board

Piscataway, NJ 08854 USA
Laws and regulations

Users of IEEE Standards documents should consult all applicable laws and regulations. Compliance with the

provisions of any IEEE Standards document does not imply compliance to any applicable regulatory

requirements. Implementers of the standard are responsible for observing or referring to the applicable

regulatory requirements. IEEE does not, by the publication of its standards, intend to urge action that is not

in compliance with applicable laws, and these documents may not be construed as doing so.

Copyrights

IEEE draft and approved standards are copyrighted by IEEE under U.S. and international copyright laws.

They are made available by IEEE and are adopted for a wide variety of both public and private uses. These

include both use, by reference, in laws and regulations, and use in private self-regulation, standardization,

and the promotion of engineering practices and methods. By making these documents available for use and

adoption by public authorities and private users, IEEE does not waive any rights in copyright to the

documents.

ISO/IEC/IEEE 8802-A:2015(E)
Photocopies

Subject to payment of the appropriate fee, IEEE will grant users a limited, non-exclusive license to

photocopy portions of any individual standard for company or organizational internal use or individual, non-

commercial use only. To arrange for payment of licensing fees, please contact Copyright Clearance Center,

Customer Service, 222 Rosewood Drive, Danvers, MA 01923 USA; +1 978 750 8400. Permission to

photocopy portions of any individual standard for educational classroom use can also be obtained through

the Copyright Clearance Center.
Updating of IEEE Standards documents

Users of IEEE Standards documents should be aware that these documents may be superseded at any time

by the issuance of new editions or may be amended from time to time through the issuance of amendments,

corrigenda, or errata. An official IEEE document at any point in time consists of the current edition of the

document together with any amendments, corrigenda, or errata then in effect.

Every IEEE standard is subjected to review at least every ten years. When a document is more than ten years

old and has not undergone a revision process, it is reasonable to conclude that its contents, although still of

some value, do not wholly reflect the present state of the art. Users are cautioned to check to determine that

they have the latest edition of any IEEE standard.

In order to determine whether a given document is the current edition and whether it has been amended

through the issuance of amendments, corrigenda, or errata, visit the IEEE-SA Website at http://

ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/standards.jsp or contact IEEE at the address listed previously. For more information

about the IEEE SA or IEEE’s standards development process, visit the IEEE-SA Website at http://

standards.ieee.org.
Errata

Errata, if any, for all IEEE standards can be accessed on the IEEE-SA Website at the following URL: http://

standards.ieee.org/findstds/errata/index.html. Users are encouraged to check this URL for errata

periodically.
Patents

Attention is called to the possibility that implementation of this standard may require use of subject matter

covered by patent rights. By publication of this standard, no position is taken by the IEEE with respect to the

existence or validity of any patent rights in connection therewith. If a patent holder or patent applicant has

filed a statement of assurance via an Accepted Letter of Assurance, then the statement is listed on the IEEE-

SA Website at http://standards.ieee.org/about/sasb/patcom/patents.html. Letters of Assurance may indicate

whether the Submitter is willing or unwilling to grant licenses under patent rights without compensation or

under reasonable rates, with reasonable terms and conditions that are demonstrably free of any unfair

discrimination to applicants desiring to obtain such licenses.

Essential Patent Claims may exist for which a Letter of Assurance has not been received. The IEEE is not

responsible for identifying Essential Patent Claims for which a license may be required, for conducting

inquiries into the legal validity or scope of Patents Claims, or determining whether any licensing terms or

conditions provided in connection with submission of a Letter of Assurance, if any, or in any licensing

agreements are reasonable or non-discriminatory. Users of this standard are expressly advised that

determination of the validity of any patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, is entirely their

own responsibility. Further information may be obtained from the IEEE Standards Association.

Introduction

This introduction is not part of IEEE Std 802-2014, IEEE Standard for Local and metropolitan area networks:

Overview and Architecture.

This document is the third major revision of the IEEE 802 overview and architecture. This revision

integrates two earlier amendments, IEEE Std 802a™-2003 (covering Ethertypes for prototype and vendor-

specific protocol development) and IEEE Std 802b™-2004 (covering registration of object identifiers),

into the previous major revision of the standard, IEEE Std 802 -2001. In addition, there has been extensive

rework in this document to bring forward the practice of protocol identification using the EtherType. While

the protocol identification mechanism specified by ISO/IEC 8802-2 (IEEE Std 802.2™, withdrawn) is still

used, its use for new standards has been deprecated. Further, material about physical layer addressing and

universal addressing has been added along with information about the IEEE Registration Authority (RA) to

facilitate user procurement of address assignments.

Since the 2001 revision of this standard, the IEEE 802 standards and working groups have undergone many

changes. IEEE Std 802.5™ was withdrawn; therefore, references to it have been removed from this revision.

IEEE Std 802 has also been broadened to include a variety of wireless standards; therefore, a new

informative annex has been added to address the variety of IEEE 802 standards (Annex D). Data rates for

IEEE 802 standards now range from
...
