This document specifies the requirements and reference framework for
Ethernet VPN (EVPN) Operations, Administration and Maintenance (OAM).
The requirements cover the OAM aspects of EVPN and PBB-EVPN. The
framework defines the layered OAM model encompassing the EVPN service
layer, network layer and underlying Packet Switched Network (PSN)
Working Group Summary
EVPN is an becoming widely adopted as a technology for implementing layer 2 VPNS.
OAM is required to aid in the maintenance of EVPN and to make it deployable
by service providers. There is strong consensus that this work is required by the BESS
working group, and this draft is required to set the context for determining the
applicability of existing OAM protocols or making extensions or indeed defining new ones.
Theer was no particularly controversial aspects to the draft.
EVPN is widely implemented and deployed. This draft is an informational set of
requirements and a framework to guide the development of OAM for EVPN and as such
does not require implementations in its own right, yet.
The draft received a number of comments during WG last call which were addressed.
