Optical connections support virtual links in MPLS-over-optical multilayer networks and therefore, errors in the optical layer impact on the quality of the services deployed on such networks. Monitoring the performance of the physical layer allows verifying the proper operation of optical connections, as well as detecting bit error rate (BER) degradations. Anticipating BER degradation facilitates self-decision making to keep committed service level. In this paper, we analyze several failure cause...
