                   draft-ietf-netmod-geo-location-03

Abstract

   This document defines a generic geographical location object YANG
   grouping.  The geographical location grouping is intended to be used
   in YANG models for specifying a location on or in reference to the
   Earth or any other astronomical object.

1.  Introduction

   In many applications we would like to specify the location of
   something geographically.  Some examples of locations in networking
   might be the location of data center, a rack in an internet exchange
   point, a router, a firewall, a port on some device, or it could be
   the endpoints of a fiber, or perhaps the failure point along a fiber.

   Additionally, while this location is typically relative to The Earth,
   it does not need to be.  Indeed it is easy to imagine a network or
   device located on The Moon, on Mars, on Enceladus (the moon of
   Saturn) or even a comet (e.g., 67p/churyumov-gerasimenko).

   Finally, one can imagine defining locations using different frames of
   reference or even alternate systems (e.g., simulations or virtual
   realities).

   This document defines a "geo-location" YANG grouping that allows for
   all of the above data to be captured.
