Primary Resource for: Models

Standard Type: Information and Data Models

Tags: MRM (MEF Resource Models)


This Standard describes the MEF Resource Model (MRM) Common, which essentially is the selection of ONF Transport API Information Model currently used and extended by more specific MEF Resource Models like Ethernet Connectivity Info Model (MEF 59), Subscriber and Operator Layer 1 Info Model (MEF 72.1), Ethernet OAM Info Model (MEF 83); and potentially useful for the Resource management at PRESTO IRP.

Lifecycle Service Orchestration Reference Architecture (LSO RA, MEF 55.1 ) extends the traditional MEF scope concerning Service Modeling, from a pure view “from outside the network” to cover a range of Operational, Orchestration, and Network Management behaviors, including SDN and NFV paradigms.
The MRM Common and its specific models (MEF 59, MEF 72.1, MEF 83) have been defined to manage the Network Infrastructure, through SDN Controllers, WAN Controllers, OTN Subnet-work Managers, and other legacy Network Management Systems. Considering LSO architecture, these management models are applicable to PRESTO Interface Reference Point.

The MRM structure is based on current and developing best network management solutions by ITU-T, ONF, TM Forum, to allow wider and future proof interoperability across multi-vendor and multi-technology networks. Examples of reference network management solutions are ITU-T G.7711/Y.1702, ONF TR-512, ONF TR-527, TM Forum MTNM and MTOSI.
