[802.3_DIALOG] Call for interest - Ethernet YANG models

Dear Colleagues,

The following request for agenda time for a call for interest has been received from Yan Zhuang. It will be discussed at the IEEE 802 LMSC March 2016 Plenary meeting in Macao SAR, P.R. China. If you have any questions please get in touch with either Yan Zhuang <zhuangyan.zhuang@xxxxxxxxxx> or myself directly.

YANG is the corner-stone for the reliable, transaction-oriented and vendor-independent network management scheme, providing functionality and operational consistency across different platforms, vendors, and implementations. YANG models for 802.3 interfaces will provide all the statistics, state information, and configuration hooks for 802.3 Ethernet PHYs, providing the natural extension of existing SNMP/MIB-based management schemes. The IEEE 802.3 YANG call for interest will request the formation of a study group to explore the market demand, modeling scope and its technical feasibility.


The call for interest will take place during the IEEE 802.3 Opening Plenary on the morning of Monday 14th March. A call for interest consensus building meeting has been scheduled to occur from 18:30 to 19:30 on the evening of Tuesday 15th March. The vote to determine if a Study Group will be formed will take place at the IEEE 802.3 Closing Plenary on the afternoon of Thursday 17th March.

Best regards,
David Law, 
Chair, IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Working Group
