LSP Monitoring for Alcatel (Nokia) devices

Even though Alcatel (Nokia) devices are supported in NNMi MPLS SPI, LSP Monitoring on Alcatel devices is not. We have a customer with their MPLS core network consisting of Nokia devices and they requested the feature. This is a request to add LSP support for Nokia (Alcatel) devices into MPLS SPI.

Dear Submitter,

Alcatel SNMP MIB had certain limitations in providing the required data and hence support for LSP monitoring was not added along with other features. We shall reevaluate the same based on community interest on the same.

We expect the community to help prioritize the idea with comments and community support (votes/kudos).

As far as I understand, no vendor provides required LSP monitoring information in the MIB, not even Cisco and Juniper (that are supported by the MPLS SPI), and additional data gathering is provided through SSH connection. In this regard Nokia is no different, so this is not an very good excuse for omitting support. I really hope the community will back this idea.
