This Recommendation provides the Optical Network Termination (ONT) Management and Control Interface (OMCI) specification for Gigabit-capable Passive Optical Network (G-PON) systems as defined in ITU-T Recs G.984.2 and G.984.3.

Firstly, it specifies the managed entities of a protocol-independent Management Information Base (MIB) that models the exchange of information between the Optical Line Termination (OLT) and the Optical Network Termination (ONT). In addition, it covers the ONT management and control channel, protocol and detailed messages.
