Understanding the condition of the PCS lanes is crucial to troubleshooting 100G links during network deployments. At the most basic level understanding that there are errors at the PCS indicates that the root cause of the fault lies with the physical signalling and not at the MAC layer or any of the high network layers…(Read More)

Loss Of Lane Alignment (LOL) is declared on 100G interfaces when it has not been possible to successfully recover the Logical Lane Marker (LLM) from the logical lanes and then re-assemble the OTU4 frame. During the lane recovery process the LLM will be present in a lane every 16320 bytes, when the same LLM…(Read More)

At 100G speeds OTN uses a multilane implementation to achieve the OTU4 client interface. Using these multilane interfaces can present a number of challenges and new defect conditions have been defined to support these. LOFLANE is a loss of frame defect on a logical lane. In some ways it is similar to Loss Of Block…(Read More)

OTN uses a similar multi-lane mechanism to 100G Ethernet to achieve 100G rates. The parallel interfaces are defined in an appendix of the G.709 recommendation.  The recommendation includes definitions of parallel interfaces for both 40G and 100G rates and within this a new signal was defined for parallel interfaces – the Optical Channel Transport…(Read More)

The client interface for 100Gb/s Ethernet is standardised in IEEE802.3ba as an amendment to the full 802.3 specification. The client interface for Ethernet at 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s is fundamentally different from the earlier 10Gb/s and lower rates. At these lower rates the interface is specified as a serial stream…(Read More)
