       I'm very interested in this work as we continue to experience
       interop challenges particularly with newer vendors to the space
       who are only implementing VCCV via control word.  Vendors who
       have tailed their MPLS OAM set specifically to the cell backhaul
       space and mandatory CW have been known to fall into this space.
       That's all I've got.

       configuration on it to have best performance.  QoS marking is

       encapsulated ATM packets.  In addition to basic L2VPN service
       configuration, these traffic are routed via MPLS TE tunnels with

       PW VCCV is very useful tool for finding faults in each PW
       channel.  Without this we can not find fault on a PW channel.  PW
       VCCV using BFD is another better option.  Interoperability
       challenges are with Ethernet OAM mechanism.

       COMPANY has deployed several MPLS network elements, from multiple
       vendors.  COMPANY is seeking a uniform implementation of VCCV
       Control Channel (CC) capabilities across its various vendor
       platforms.  This will provide COMPANY with significant advantages
       in reduced operational overheads when handling cross-domain
       faults.  Having a uniform VCCV feature implementation in COMPANY
       multi-vendor network leads to:

       o   Reduced operational cost and complexity

       o   Reduced OSS development to coordinate incompatible VCCV
           implementations.

       o   Increased end-end service availability when handing faults.

       In addition, currently some of COMPANY deployed VCCV traffic
       flows (on some vendor platforms) are not guaranteed to follow
       those of the customer's application traffic (a key operational
       requirement).  As a result, the response from the circuit ping
       cannot faithfully reflect the status of the circuit.  This leads
       to ambiguity regarding the operational status of our networks.
       An in-band method is highly preferred, with COMPANY having a
       clear preference for VCCV Circuit Ping using PWE Control Word.
       This preference is being pursued with each of COMPANY vendors.
