New ITU-T core information model for transition to software-defined networking

ITU members have achieved first-stage approval (‘consent’) of a core information model for transport resources which will enable smooth transition from traditional management using an Operation Support System (OSS) to Software-Defined Networking (SDN) architectures. The new standard gives operators the…
