Ethernet handles unidirectional failure natively through autonego asserting RFI.


B sees loss-of signal
A does not
B asserts RFI
A receives RFI and goes down

Some devices, such as JunOS can also assert RFI for external factors,
like you can ask JunOS to assert RFI to client port, when pseudowire
goes down, so client experiences link down when you experience
pseudowire down.
