OE, AimValley Do Smart SFP
Operation, Administration and Maintenance (OAM) are essential for service turn-up and SLA assurance in Carrier Ethernet networks. The Smart SFPTM integrates OAM functions into conventional SFPs providing operators an effective tool for monitoring and troubleshooting Ethernet services. This solution reduces system and network complexity, and offers lower carbon footprint while generating CAPEX & OPEX savings.
“The Gigabit Ethernet Demarcation OAM Smart SFPTM, which Alcatel-Lucent developed in collaboration with Aim Valley, extends our 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) solution offering,” said Sam Bucci, VP & GM, Terrestrial Optics Product Unit, Alcatel-Lucent. “The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 PSS with Smart SFPTM provides customers service visibility at the network edge demarcation in applications like Mobile Backhaul, Business Ethernet and Carrier wholesale, and is essential for rapid service commissioning and revenue generating SLAs.”
Smart SFPTM provides instant support for Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM). On top of EFM Link OAM IEEE 802.3ah, the Smart SFPTM offers Connectivity Fault Management (CFM) of end-to-end Service OAM IEEE 802.1ag and Y.1731 Performance Management.
