+      The interface can have additional parameters as shown below
+      if the switch is conforming to the IEEE 802.1Qbh standard.
+      The values are network specific and should be provided by the 
+      network administrator.

+      <dd>The profile ID contains the name of the port profile that is to 
+        be applied onto this interface.  This name is resolved by the port 
+        profile database into the network parameters from the port profile, 
+        and those network parameters will be applied to this interface.
