Make sure both ends sync from the line (as it's a syncronous link).

A path switch event with won't impact BGP, if it did the entire internet
would be a constant
flap. Typically path switches are 50ms in the metro and not much longer
on long distance 
(or is done at the optical layer). It also could be that the protection
may need to be

Make sure you set scramble on the link as some multiplexers still have
traffic signal issues that IP traffic can trigger.
