This paper shows the recent standardization activities on Ethernet OAM functions. First, it briefly introduces recent carrier class Ethernet services indicating their characteristics and operational issues. Then, it explains current standardization status on Ethernet OAM functions. Finally it shows the requirements for Ethernet OAM functions and details of the OAM mechanisms currently being standardized by ITU-T SG13, SG15 and IEEE 802.1 WG.
