VeEX Inc., announces the release of the Ethernet OAM (Operations, Administration, and Maintenance) feature in its VePAL 300 and VePAL 100+ Transport and Ethernet test set portfolio. The Ethernet OAM feature supports industry standard OAM protocols IEEE 802.3ah, IEEE 802.1ag, and ITU-T Y.1731, required to provision and troubleshoot Carrier Ethernet and Mobile Backhaul network deployments.

VeEX developed the Ethernet OAM protocol feature in close partnership with NComm Inc. because the company offered a complete, drop-in, standards compliant, and pre-tested solution that accelerated time to market. “Not only did NComm deliver a stable source code necessary to merge the various OAM protocols seamlessly into our products, but they also provided excellent technical support during the entire integration phase, sparing us extensive and expensive resources which would have been required to develop this critical test capability from ground zero” said Cyrille Morelle, President and CEO of VeEX Inc.

“The success of NComm is based on the quality of our products and technical support that ensures the success of our customers”, said William T. Matern, President and Founder of NComm, Inc. “We believe the NComm software is a great addition to VeEX’s already robust product line of Ethernet test equipment”.

VeEX’s Ethernet OAM feature allows technicians to easily provision and troubleshoot Link Level and Service Level OAM protocol handling. Link Level OAM (IEEE 802.3ah) test capabilities include link partner discovery, remote loopback, MIB retrieval, link event notifications such as link fault, critical event, and dying gasp. Service Level OAM (IEEE 802.1ag and ITU-T Y.1731) features for the purpose of fault management include the generation and analysis of the following messages: CCM (continuity check), LBM/LBR (loopback), and LTM/LTR (link trace). Performance metrics for delay and frame loss are additionally supported in the ITU-T Y.1731 OAM messages: DMM/DMR (delay measurement) and LMM/LMR (loss measurement).
