Technical Summary

  This document describes a YANG data model for Logical Network Elements (LNEs).  
  A network device may divide its resources into logical network elements (LNEs), 
  each of which provides a managed logical device. The module defined in this document 
  is used to support multiple LNEs on a single physical or virtual system, create LNEs and 
  allocate host resource to a given LNE.

Working Group Summary

  This draft has been thoroughly discussed in the WG.
  The draft adoption and progress has received full support from the WG.
  All comments have been addressed.  The draft is ready for publication.

The draft went through initial reviews by YANG-Doctors and the quality is good.
The proposed model has at least one known implementation.


   Yingzhen Qu is the Document Shepherd.
  Alia Atlas is the Responsible Area Director.
