1. An apparatus comprising:

  • an Ethernet transceiver configured to receive an Ethernet frame from a source;

    a very high speed digital subscriber line (VDSL) transceiver configured to transmit on at least one VDSL link, wherein a VDSL protocol for the VDSL link defines a fixed size for each VDSL frame to be transmitted on the VDSL link; and

    an encapsulation unit coupled to the Ethernet transceiver and the VDSL transceiver, wherein the encapsulation unit is configured to encapsulate the Ethernet frame in a corresponding frame, and wherein the corresponding frame exceeds the fixed size defined in the VDSL protocol, and wherein the VDSL transceiver is configured to transmit the corresponding frame on the VDSL link even though the corresponding frame exceeds the fixed size.
