This Recommendation provides an information model for the performance monitoring of Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) network. This model describes the managed object classes and their properties for the performance monitoring function of unidirectional paths and sections, as defined in ITU‑T G.784 and as related to SDH network elements. These objects are useful to describe information exchanged across interfaces defined in ITU‑T M.3010 Telecommunications Management Network (TMN) architecture for the management of the performance monitoring function.
