When you configure VC management, you enable the router to detect VC connections and disconnections automatically. This notifies protocols to reroute packets immediately, preventing protocols from waiting for unpredictable and relatively long timeout periods. You may use Integrated Local Management Interface (ILMI) or operation, administration, and maintenance (OAM) or both for managing your PVCs, and OAM for managing your SVCs.
