Multi-Technology Operations Systems Interface (MTOSI) is an XML-based Operations System (OS)-to-OS interface suite. The Network Management System-to-Element Management System communications is a special case and is defined by the Multi-Technology Network Management (MTNM) standards.
MTOSI uses a single interface infrastructure and applies the same patterns across multiple technologies. For example, the same basic termination point and connection models are applied across all connection-oriented technologies ranging from DWDM to ATM. A similar statement can be made about the MTOSI connectionless model.
MTOSI supports the management of these technologies: SONET/SDH, PDH, DWDM, Ethernet, DSL, ATM, and Frame Relay. Support is planned for MPLS-TP, GPON, and Control Plane management.
