Simplified Use of Policy Abstractions (SUPA) defines a set of rules that define how services are designed, delivered, and operated within an operator's environment independent of any one particular service or networking device. SUPA expresses policy rules using a generic policy information model, which serves as a unifying influence to enable different data model implementations to be simultaneously developed.
