Application Guide: Managing the Carrier Ethernet Service Lifecycle

Service Setup, Ongoing Monitoring, Fault Management and Repair

Ensure profitable Ethernet service delivery by streamlining the deployment, monitoring and maintenance of such services.

This practical guide describes the various test procedures, along with implementation considerations and recommendations for use at turn-up, ongoing monitoring and other critical points throughout the service lifecycle to ensure quality of service and maintain Ethernet COS.

The Ethernet service validation tests are based on IEEE 802.3-2005 (formerly 802.3ah), IEEE 802.1ag Ethernet Connectivity Fault Management (CFM), ITU-T Y.1731, RFC-2544, and diagnostic loopbacks.
