To understand the cross-domain analysis, it is important to understand the analysis of the IP and OTM domains. In particular, in the IP domain there are several different possible analysis results as it relates to optical failures. The following are a set of cross domain analysis scenarios that are handled by the VMware Smart Assurance XD Manager OTM to IP solution.
These scenarios show one type of topology: two Routers, Interfaces, a Network Connection, SONET/SDH, and LO-SDH topology. The same scenarios also apply to Switches, Ports, a Cable, WDM, and WDM-NG topology.
