This section describes how to configure Multiprotocol Label Switching Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) operation, administration and maintenance (OAM) for a pseudo wire (PW). The NetEngine 8000 F can monitor PWs using MPLS-TP OAM.
MPLS-TP has been widely used on transport networks. Since traditional transport networks (such as SDH and OTN networks) set high benchmarks for reliability and maintenance, MPLS-TP must provide powerful OAM capabilities.
MPLS-TP OAM can detect faults in a PW and collect performance statistics. On the PW shown in Figure 1, T-PEs are the maintenance entity group end points (MEPs), and S-PEs are the maintenance entity group intermediate points (MIPs). MPLS-TP OAM runs on the MEPs and provides connectivity check, frame loss measurement, and frame delay measurement.
Table 1 describes the support of MPLS-TP OAM detection for different types of PWs.
Configure a PW over a bidirectional LSP.
Enable performance statistics collection for the attachment circuit (AC) interface of the PW.
