HDLC-like framing methods

Hi

I need a HDLC-like framing method with following features:
1) HDLC-based, i.e. compatible with HDLC standard:)
2) Multiplexing - supports parametrized number (up to 65536) of logical channels
3) As few number of extended unneed information (e.g. Packet-Type), as it's possible

I think, there are some HDLC implementations (cisco, 3com, infineon) having these features. It's better to use already developed framing method, than to create a new one.

Please help me to find relevant framing methods and, if possible, implementing source codes, and to compare them.

What are you carrying? Voice - data - both? . . . kind of a strange question. I mean . . . what kind of layer 2 protocol CAN'T be muxed? 65536 channels is a BOAT LOAD of channels . . . how large a stream are you looking to transport?

Hi Steve, thanks for your comment.

You're right. I poorly understood my problem before posting question.
The protocol i'm looking for is HDLC-based data transfer protocol, with a bit number of channels (65536 channels must be supported by higher layers, so it's not my problem).
IMHO V.42 is good enough to meet these requirements. It has 6 (up to 13) bits for DLCI. Some of DLCI values are reserved by recommendation.
Can I use reserved values for numbering channels, if I want to keep compatibility with V.42?

Would you help me to get free source code that implements V.42, or PPP or Frame Relay?

Thank you.

If your trying to get free source code for layer 2 encapsulation protocols, good luck, most are of a proprietary nature and you just can't go out and get free source code for it. You actually need to talk to people like voice/data vendors to see what they might be able to come up with for you. However, like you said, you could write your own.
