Hi All,Following is a proposal on the NIX Protocol - Network Information Exchange Protocol. If the Open API community concur for the need, will step into the further process of documentation and API development. Please guide and let me know your feedback.
The following document is the proposal for standardizing the maintenance activity related email communication between network companies. Globally network companies do partner with other network carriers for capacity augmentation and riding services to the customers. During maintenance activities that could impact the circuits of partnered companies, the communication happens in nonstandard email format. Though automation and standardization are experimented by some carriers since no standardization is in place, adopting communication means as per one's practice would be very much challenging without standardization. Hence there is a lot of manual process in place to covert the nonstandard email format communication into digital records.
While standardizing identified following key important attributes in maintenance activity that could impact partner companies' associated circuits or NEs or customers.
