RFC 6244 – Network Management Using NETCONF and YANG

I’ve been watching NETCONF and YANG for about four years and it seems that it might be breaking through the noise to set a new standard for Network Management data exchange. In short, SNMP isn’t working and the next generation of “blah blah Cloud” will require more sophisticated communication than SNMP can handle. In the last four years, NETCONF has matured and slowly percolated its way through the industry. Now that is has teamed up with YANG we have something that looks like it’s about to burst into the mainstream.
