Subject: IETF YANG Models of Interest to Broadband Forum

Date: 13 July 2017

Communicated By: David Sinicrope <>

Dear All,
The Broadband Forum is progressing work defining the Common YANG modules for
Broadband Forum specified access network equipment (i.e. Access Nodes and FTTdp
DPUs). As part of this work, we intend to define a framework for alarm and
event management and aim to reuse existing work done by other SDOs where

To that extent we have a specific interest in draft-vallin-netmod-alarm-module
and have been discussing its applicability to the Broadband Forum Common YANG
project at our recent Q2 meeting (May 15-18, 2017) . We also understand that
this draft has recently been moved to the CCAMP WG. We would like to express
our interest in progressing this draft. Similarly, we would like to state our
specific interest in the YANG Data Model specified in draft-ietf-netmod-entity;
this has been used in our Common YANG specification. While this liaison
expresses BBF interest in these drafts, our members plan to participate in the
work to progress the drafts within the IETF, according to the IETF process. We
would appreciate it if you could keep us informed of your further plans.
