  • Traditional Private Lease Line and Private Virtual Connection (PVC) are provided through T1/T3 or SONET/SHD access loops. They are complicated, costly, somewhat slow and not very scalable. They do offer very consistent and reliable performances, and have built-in OAM for fault detection and management.
  • Standards-based, end-to-end OAM is required for reasons such as: Automated configuration; fast service turn up End to end service control Hop-by-hop fault management Preventative maintenance and troubleshooting Customer notification of service degradation PM and SLA verification with CoS and QoS Network resilience and fast recovery Management and Control Plane to manage End-to-End OAM: Network Audit, NE Back-up, Restore etc. Configuration Management Fault of Troubleshooting Interface PM Collection Security Management with NE Access Control
  • Traditional Private Lease Line and Private Virtual Connection (PVC) are provided through T1/T3 or SONET/SHD access loops. They are complicated, costly, somewhat slow and not very scalable. They do offer very consistent and reliable performances, and have built-in OAM for fault detection and management.
  • Commence from the bottom up 802.3ah for local link monitoring 802.1ag for hierarchical service connectivity verification Y.1731 for end-to-end service performance monitoring Saying all that, all these standard have some duplicate capabilities in the fault and connectivity areas.
  • Mechanisms are: Discovery Remote Failure Indication - Dying gasp, link fault &amp; critical event Remote Loopback Control – The ability to set remote port to loopback mode. This will loopback all control protocols inc. routing, OAM etc Performance monitoring and threshold crossing alarms Also intended for “Emulated” point-to-point links (e.g. OLT-ONT in PON case over a P-MP topology) are also included. But note that always 802.3 phy is required Slow Protocol (Max rate of 10 frames per second) Ethernet OAM shares BW with data payload OAMPDUs identified by MAC address and Ethernet Length/Type/subtype field Uses a protocol sub layer between physical and Data link layers All 802.3ah OAM PDUs must be untagged Extensibility: OAM is extensible through the use of the following: Organization Specific OAMPDU Organization Specific Information TLV Organization Specific Event TLV
  • CFM? Employs regular Ethernet frames that travel in-band with the customer traffic Devices that cannot interpret CFM Messages forward them as normal data frames
  • This example shows Maintenance Associations (MAs) between Maintenance End Points (MEPs) at three levels within a Maintenance Domain (MD). Maintenance Intermediate Points (MIPs) can be associated per MD or per MA which depends on the visibility the administer has configured.
  • Technically aligned with 802.1ag Uses slightly different terminology (Eg. MEG = MA in IEEE 802.1ag) 802.1ag specifies the FRAME FORMAT used by Y.1731 802.1ag and Y.1731 bodies worked closely together; hence, the standards provide extremely similar functionality Differences in recommendations exist as the work in IEEE was not completed when SG13 commenced its work on Y.1731 ETH-CC, ETH-LB, ETH-LT ETH-TEST Used to perform one-way on-demand in-service or out-of-service diagnostics tests. This includes verifying bandwidth throughput, frame loss, bit errors, etc.
