<networking> (PPPoA) A network protocol for encapsulating
PPP frames in ATM AAL5. It is used mainly with cable modem, DSL and ADSL services.
PPPoA offers standard PPP features such as authentication,
encryption, and compression. It is very slightly more
efficient than PPPoE and, like PPPoE, supports VC-MUX and
PPPoA is specified in RFC 2364.
