hdsl2/hdsl4 note

Has anyone noticed the following in the hdsl4 eoc specification?

>>> 12 	Loop ID (HDSL4)	unsigned char	1 - Loop 1  2 - Loop 2

Re: hdsl2/hdsl4 note


Including the Loop ID in certain eoc status messages serves (as you guess)
only for 2-pair configuration.

In such a case when, for example, the STU-R reports the line attenuation
measurements it transfers the value for pair #1through BOTH pairs. Then it
transfers the value for pair #2 through BOTH pairs.

Adding the Loop ID parameter enables the STU-C determine to which of the
pairs the information refers.
