Abstract

This document defines extensions to the Service Function Chain (SFC) Operation, Administration and Maintenance (OAM) that enable control of the Echo Reply return path by specifying it as Reverse Service Function Path. Enforcing the specific return path can be used to verify bidirectional connectivity of SFC and increase robustness of SFC OAM.
