OTN – Lesson 11 – Tandem Connection Monitoring Multi-Administrative Domain Defect Analysis – Part TWO

This blog post contains the second of two videos that analyzes how the Multi-Administrative Domain uses Tandem Connection Monitoring to respond to service-affecting defects within an ODU signal passing through it.

Lesson 11 – Video 11 – Tandem Connection Monitoring (TCM) Multi-Administrative Domain Defect Analysis – Part TWO

This blog post contains a video covering the second (and final) part of the Multi-Administrative Domain Walk-Through when defects are occuring.

In particular, this video discusses how the Multi-Administrative Domain will respond to the presence of defects.

During this video, we are going to analyze the Multi-Administrative Domain’s response to the following two cases.

Case 2 – Whenever a Service-Affecting defect occurs within Serving Operator Domain – Operator B, and

Case 3 – Whenever a Service-Affecting defect occurs within the Protect Domain.

NOTE: We analyzed Case 1 (Service-Affecting defect occurs within the ODU signal, but outside of any of the administrative regions) in the previous video.

As we analyze the Multi-Administrative Domain’s response to these defects (for Cases 2 and 3), we will cover the following topics:

  • What exactly occurs within an ODU signal that experiences a service-affecting defect?
  • How do ODU-layer, ODUT-layer and OTU-layer circuitry respond to such defects?
  • How do the circuitry within each of these Administrative Domains respond to the service-affecting defects, associated with Cases 2 and 3?
  • What does the Path Terminating Equipment (at the remote-terminal) do in response to these service-affecting defects?

This video will close out our discussion of Lesson 11 – Tandem Connection Monitoring.
