P1904.2 - Standard for Universal Management Tunnel for Ethernet-based Subscriber Access Networks
Project Details
This standard describes a Universal Management Tunnel (UMT) for devices used in Ethernet-based subscriber access networks. The key characteristics of the specified management mechanism are: - The ability to transit Layer 2 bridges in a single IEEE 802 Media Access Control (MAC) domain to allow remote device management; - Extensibility to accommodate new management protocols and new types of devices; - The ability to simultaneously send messages to multiple UMT stations using broadcast or multicast addressing. The standard describes the message format as well as processing operations at the stations participating in the UMT protocol.
