Ethernet OAM is used to detect and isolate faults and measure performance in
end to end Carrier Ethernet connections. IEEE 802.1ag specifies the mechanism
to detect and isolate faults. ITU Y.1731 specifies the mechanism to measure
performance including Frame Loss, Frame Delay and Frame Delay Variation.
As Carrier Ethernet becomes more widely deployed, the ability to manage
networks and provide real time visibility into the network becomes essential.
Mingoa's hardware delivers superior performance at an ultra low cost.
It provides five-nines accuracy through the use of hardware based in-line data
packet counters. It maintains full data throughput while simultaneously
monitoring 100's of services and it fits in low end FPGAs in the
Spartan-6 or Cyclone IV families.
