Body
Q14/15 thanks the ONF Information Modelling Project group for sharing the in-progress information modelling work, including the model developing process, UML modelling guidelines, open-source modelling tool Papyrus, the ONF common information model, Core Info Model base document, Model Sketches, and the Spec Model thoughts. We are pleased that our transport technology specific information models ITU-T G.874.1 for OTN, ITU-T G.8052 for Carrier Ethernet and draft ITU-T G.8152 for MPLS-TP, and also the Generic Information Model for transport resources (ITU-T G.gim) are useful to the development of the ONF common information model.

To continue our collaboration for an industry-wide open common information model for transport resources, we enclose the following Q14/15 in-progress information modelling work for your information.

−       Draft New Recommendation ITU-T G.gim “Generic Protocol-Neutral Information Model for Transport Resources” v0.04

Note that ITU-T G.gim v0.04 has taken into account the ONF modelling work just liaised. We plan to consent ITU-T G.gim in the upcoming SG15 plenary meeting on 22 June – 3 July 2015. We will appreciate any comments you may provide.

At this interim meeting, we also started the modelling for the scheduling function and network synchronization management. We will keep you updated with the progress of this modelling work.
