802.3ah Ethernet OAM Settings
802.3ah Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) Operations Administration and Maintenance (OAM) is a group
of network management functions that provide network fault indication, performance information, and
diagnosis using special-purpose Ethernet OAM frames. These are exchanged between your Gateway
and service provider Access Node (AN) devices for network fault management, performance analysis
and fault isolation.
All VDSL and Ethernet WAN Motorola Netopia
Gateways support Ethernet OAM options.
More Ethernet Packet-Transfer-Mode (PTM) enabled xDSL Motorola Netopia
Gateways will support
802.3ah Ethernet OAM options in future releases.
802.3ah Ethernet OAM exchanges periodic Ethernet OAM heartbeat frames between the endpoints of
the physical link being monitored, and thus discovers and keeps-alive the Link connectivity and reports
faults if the link goes down. Supported OAM request and response types are: remote loopback enable,
remote loopback disable, variable request, variable response.
