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
