Paper Abstract

It is important to resolve the questions of how many BIP bytes are required and which EDC should be adopted for performance monitoring in Optical Transport Networks (OTN). Based on the Poisson Error Model and Burst Error Model, we obtain the mathematical expressions for the probabilities of occurrence of a block error and of detecting a block error, as well as the detection efficiency. Analyses and simulations to determine the maximum BER that can be detected (i.e., the saturation BER) and the minimum detection efficiency are given. Conclusions are drawn as follows: one BIP byte per tandem connection monitoring field is adequate for performance monitoring; 2*BIP-4 EDC should be adopted to meet the requirement that the detection efficiency be no less than 90%; 8*BIP-1 EDC is acceptable if the real-time BER measurement estimate is not required.
