Technical Summary

   This document defines a YANG data model for fabric topology in Data
   Center Network.

   Normally, a data center (DC) network is composed of single or
   multiple fabrics which are also known as PODs (Points Of Delivery).
   These fabrics may be heterogeneous due to implementation of different
   technologies when a DC network is upgraded or new techniques and
   features are enrolled.    The configuration and management of such DC networks with
   heterogeneous fabrics will result in considerable complexity,
   requiring a fair amount of sophistication.   As a basis for DC fabric management, 
   this document defines a YANG  data model [6020][7950] for fabric-based data center topology. 
   To do so, it augments the generic network and network topology data models
   defined in [I-D.ietf-i2rs-yang-network-topo] with information that is
   specific to Data Center fabric networks.

Working Group Summary

  There was solid consensus in the working group to take 
  on the work both on the list, and at IETF meetings. 

Document Quality

There is an implementation of this yang data model.
