The OIF is launching a survey designed to determine how the recently published Coherent Common Management Interface Specification Implementation Agreement (OIF-C-CMIS-01.1) is viewed by the industry and the level of industry alignment on and support for further standardization of optical module management. The subject of module management encompasses physical interfaces, communication protocols and management applications layers.

  • The survey is available now and open to all who can act as a stakeholder and represent their company’s viewpoint – module vendors, system vendors, and network operators.
  • Multiple responses per company are allowed.
  • Responses will be collated anonymously and then evaluated by a dedicated survey evaluation team.
  • There will be a public webinar on July 30, 2020 at 7am PDT to announce the results of the survey.
