Standard Type: Information and Data Models

The MEF Standard consisting of this schema guide and its associated software artifacts (JSON Schemas) defines and describes the product-specific information used in LSO Sonata APIs for a set of Business Functions—specifically, Product Offering Qualification, Quoting, Ordering and Inventory—for an Access E-Line product.

Supporting Materials:

The document starts with an overview of LSO Sonata and the Access E-Line Carrier Ethernet service. It then provides a basic information model for the MEF Carrier Ethernet Service Attributes. The final sections describe the Data Model focused on the JSON Schemas (in YAML format) associated with this specification.

This document can be thought of as a user’s guide for the Access E-Line Data Model. MEF Services are described by a set of Service Attributes. Each Service Attribute describes an aspect of the service that is agreed between the provider and the user of the service. The document that describes the Service Attributes for Operator Ethernet Services (of which Access E-Line is one) is MEF 26.2. The service, itself, is specified in MEF 51.1 based on the Service Attributes defined in MEF 26.2. MEF 26.2 specifies 72 Service Attributes to describe the various components that compose an Operator Ethernet Service. This document defines a data model that includes 56 of those Service Attributes and also lists the Service Attributes that are not included in the data model and the reason why each is not included.
