Summit X480 Series Switches Only

You can configure WAN PHY OAM on the Summit X480 series switches whether or not they are included in a SummitStack.

The WAN-PHY OAM feature is a subset of the SONET/SDH overhead function and the WAN PHY interface is defined in IEEE 802.3ae.

Summit X480 series switches are WAN-PHY capable on 10G XFP ports. XFP ports can operate in both LAN and WAN modes. For such ports, the WAN PHY configuration commands that are shown in the following section, are available only after setting the ports to “WAN PHY” mode using the command:

configure ports port_list mode {lan | wan-phy}
