Hi Tom,

Also tried with packetlight, but they offer no support for ODUFlex and
didn't implement latency/jitter monitoring. Also configuration through
their WebUI is mandatory, so no possible automation. Kind of a
dealbreaker nowadays.

I don't find what I need there. I just want to plug an OTU4 uplink in a
standard QSFP28 port, no fancy photonics are required, and benefit from
inband monitoring and management, FEC and trafic isolation.

It would idealy be represented in ONL or Cumulus as a new type of
interfaces, with OSC and every muxponded ODU as sub-interfaces, and a
new type of bridge to patch them to other ODUs or map them to ethernet
service ports… Every sub-if having SNMP OIDs for load, FEC reporting and
latency measurement.

I hope it's a bit more clear now ?
