Recommendation ITU-T M.3102 provides a management information model for unified connection-oriented and connectionless networks, based on the unified functional architecture of transport networks specified in Recommendation ITU-T G.800. This model describes information object classes (IOCs) and their properties that are generic and useful to describe information exchanged across all interfaces defined in Recommendation ITU-T M.3010, TMN architecture. These generic information object classes are intended to be applicable across different technologies, architecture and services. The information object classes in this Recommendation may be specialized to support the management of various telecommunications networks.

This Recommendation follows Recommendation ITU-T M.3020, management interface specification methodology on the analysis phase. The information models provided in this Recommendation are in a protocol-neutral manner, and can be mapped to multiple protocol-specific information models (design phase).
