Detecting and correlating external path-related faults and degradations by extending  LMP between OXC and DWDM
OIF Contribution OIF2001.055, January 22, 2001


The need for faster detection and restoration of faults and degradations is essential in the optical networks due to the amount of traffic being carried by them. This calls for tighter control on the detection and reporting mechanisms. In this document we propose some such extensions that can be made to the LMP to run between the DWDM and OXC. This proposal is to extend [2] and to streamline the needs for such a protocol.
