Q-in-Q functionality

IEEE802.3ah OAM
  Standard Function

AMC230 Series has two working modes: Master and Slave. The central office device runs in Master mode, and customer premise devices run in Slave mode. OAM functions originated from the Master device.

Link Monitoring

Reports local events to a remote device including Critical Event (voltage and temperature abnormalities) and Dying Gasp (power down).

OAM Discovery

Searches for remote devices with IEEE802.3ah OAM functionality enabled, and negotiates with remote devices.

Working Temperature

0 °C to 60 °C

Working Humidity

5 % to 90 % RH (non-condensing)

Storage Temperature

-10 °C to 70 °C
