seen as an important way to simplify traffic engineering in NGN. ITU-T
Recommendation Y.1714 provides a framework for management and operation
administration maintenance (OAM) in MPLS. OAM mechanisms facilitate network
operation and troubleshooting. Standards-based OAM features that will allow for
interoperability between different vendors are seen as a requirement for
carriers adopting MPLS.
to the telecommunication management network (TMN) model
developed by ITU-Tís Study Group 4, the
Recommendationís scope is limited to those components and interfaces that
interface between network elements (user and control plane), and between
