This standard describes a management channel for customer-premises equipment (CPE) connected to Ethernet-based subscriber access networks. The key characteristics of the specified management channel are: - Multi-hop capabilities to allow management of various CPE devices located behind an Optical Network Unit (ONU), a Coaxial Network Unit (CNU), a Residential Gateway (RGW), etc. - Extensibility to accommodate new management protocols and/or new types of CPE devices. - Broadcast/multicast capabilities to allow simultaneous (synchronized) configuration of multiple devices. - Encryption capabilities to ensure secure access to managed CPE devices by the network operators. The standard describes the message format as well as processing operations and forwarding rules at the intermediate nodes.
