Ethernet Basics: SLA testing using RFC-2544 and EtherSAM Y.1564

  • July 8, 2020

Kevin Peres

Applications Engineer, Advanced Technologies and Solutions

Kevin has been with EXFO for 18 years and has been involved in the telecom industry for 29 years. Starting in excavation as a laborer, Kevin traded in his shovel for a backhoe laying cable across the US. He later worked for a Tier 1 service provider as a splicer and tester, working on new installs and disaster recovery. Kevin became an Operations technician, turning up and maintaining DS1 to 10G systems. Leveraging this field experience, Kevin delivers a unique perspective which shows in his educational approach when delivering expert content through webinars or seminars. 

Join speaker Kevin Peres as he walks you through the theory around Ethernet technology as well as best practices for turning-up, installing and troubleshooting today’s Ethernet-based services. The testing portion will explore RFC-2544 versus EtherSAM Y.1564 methodologies for Ethernet SLA validation, traffic generation and monitoring for troubleshooting as well as smart loop and third-party testing.

Key takeaways:

  • Ethernet 101
  • Explanation of the OSI layers 1-4
  • Y.1564 setup and configuration
  • Overview of iSAM
