BGP ATT MPLS

I am having an issue with an ATT MPLS Ethernet circuit with BGP.  I have a 140 MPLS circuit network with ATT and this is the only site where I am having this type of issue.  

From CER to the CPE BGP will flap and the circuit will go up and down.  The circuit will finally go down hard.  I see down down on my router.  ATT tests the circuit and say they are testing clean to their equipment.  If I go into my equipment and shut no shut the physical interface that connects to the ATT equipment the port goes UP UP and BGP is re-established with no issues.

Hi

Hi

Looking at that output there's definitely a layer 1 issue there whether its cabling or connecting mux t fault , 9/10 its ISP side but you will most likely have to replace local cabling to rule them out

  13 lost carrier, 0 no carrier, 0 pause output

lost carrier and no carrier—The carrier is an electrical signal that Ethernet devices use to detect whether the wire is currently being used by another transmitting station.

The lost carrier counter increases each time a carrier sense loss occurs. This happens when the hardware is transmitting a frame onto the wire and does not see its own carrier wave on the Ethernet. The absence of the carrier signal increments the no carrier counter.

lost carrier Description: Cisco IOS sh interfaces counter. The number of times the carrier was lost in transmission. Common Causes: Check for a bad cable. Check the physical connection on both sides.

Hi

Hi

do you see anything on your local physical interface that may be causing it ? inputs , crcs etc or is it clean nothing incrementing

Is the mtu the same as the other circuits ? nothing different setup, same config setup as the other 140 circuits in general bgp config

Have ATT even swapped out the local mux in case its a lower layer issue , if its constantly happening I would request that to rule out their kit

If its happening frequently you could run a debug to the specific neighbour send it to your buffer and try and capture the more relevant info as that only show you its flapping

MTU size is the same as it is on the rest of the circuits. 

ATT is requesting inside wiring be verified at the site.  I am having LCON swap out the cat6 cable.  I highly doubt it's going to be the cabling.  But I cant contest until this is done.
