We are pleased to announce the release of Reference Implementation Agreement for T-API v2.1.3, ONF Technical Reference (TR) 547. This document is the result of joint collaboration between optical network providers and operators within the OTCC Project at ONF. The goal of this effort was to create a standard reference specification for the implementation of T-API based optical network management, by leveraging operator experiences with testing and deployment. This Reference Implementation Agreement presents a comprehensive guide for the development and implementation of different use cases ranging from optical network discovery, service provisioning, hardware inventory and fault management.
The target audience for this document is both network providers deploying T-API as northbound interface for their SDN controller systems, and client layer applications and Operations Support Systems (OSS) consuming T-API as a southbound API.
Special thanks to Arturo Mayoral (Telefonica) as the editor and Andrea Mazzini (Nokia) and Karthik Sethuraman (NEC) as T-API Working Group Leads.
