Difference between GFP-F and GFP-T

GFP (an encapsulation protocol) defines two client signal adaptation modes:
Frame-Mapped GFP (GFP-F): GFP-F is a PDU-oriented processing mode. It encapsulates the entire PDU into the GFP payload area and makes no modification on the encapsulated data. It determines whether to add a detection area for the payload area, depending on requirements.
Transparent GFP (GFP-T): GFP-T is a block-code (8B/10B code block) oriented processing mode. It extracts a single character from the received data block and maps the character into the fixed-length GFP frame.
