Event purpose and objectives

There exist a number of Monitoring and Measurement tools in common use. Although they may share similar protocols and mechanisms they differ significantly in many aspects including data export format, export protocol, mechanism to transfer configuration information, transport mechanisms, devices state information, sampling methods, and reporting results. Consequently it is difficult to develop generalised tools that are a requirement in today interoperable networks.

In addition the industry and the research community need devices working in a standardized way to facilitate their interaction and usage in services such as Internet research, measurement, accounting, and billing.

The interoperability event aimed on the following objectives and benefits:

Event Description
