This project aims to evolve industry-wide Open Information Models and associated open source tooling software that guides/supports the development of software-defined standard platforms, frameworks and interfaces used to control/manage/orchestrate Software Defined Networks. It will include the development of
Detailed but compact canonical models in UML (with supporting documentation), capturing the essence of networking from a management-control perspective, and of control from a governance perspective that will, by emphasizing patterns, promote efficient software development
Tooling software that supports the mapping from the canonical models to purpose specific UML models (such as for an interface)
Tooling software that converts an appropriate UML model into an interface schema form such as Yang, JSON or TOSCA
Guidelines that promote normalized use of UML, shared tooling use and tool driven standardized language mappings
