    map as a verb?


    Hi,

    I would like to know if the underlined sentence makes any sense to you? If so, could please tell me what does it mean? It seems to me nonsense:

    While we described the procedures above in terms of a single destination node, their correctness and optimality hold in the presence of multiple destinations if rules are per-destination. This setting maps to layer 2 routing, which uses MAC addresses as destinations, or tunnel-based routing, which users tunnel identi_ers as destinations.


    Thanks

    All the tech gibberish doesn't make sense to an outsider. But if something "maps" to something else, it means that what was said for the "single destination mode" can be applied to "layer 2 routing." There is some correspondence between the one and the other. Whatever was used for "destinations" in the first example applies to "MAC addresses" in the other.

    Thanks

    In fact I would like to know if it's grammatically correct?

    Yes, the grammar is fine. The "users" should be "uses" and the word "identifiers" needs to be spelled right.
