               A Framework for Management and Control of
           Microwave and Millimeter Wave Interface Parameters

Abstract

   The unification of control and management of microwave radio link
   interfaces is a precondition for seamless multi-layer networking and
   automated network provisioning and operation.

   This document describes the required characteristics and use cases
   for control and management of radio link interface parameters using a
   YANG data model.

   The purpose is to create a framework to identify the necessary
   information elements and define a YANG data model for control and
   management of the radio link interfaces in a microwave node.  Some
   parts of the resulting model may be generic and could also be used by
   other technologies, e.g., Ethernet technology.
