CMIP (Common Management Information Protocol) and CMIS (Common Management Information Service) have been standardized by ITU-T respectively in X.710 and X.711. CMIP allows communication between a network management system and a network management agent. CMIP is used to exchange management operations or management notifications. CMIP relies on ACSE (Association Control Service Element) and ROSE (Remote Operation Service element).
CMIP offers an object oriented request/response between the agent and the manager applications. Objects are described using GDMO (Guidelines for the Definition of Managed Objects). The manager and the agent shall share the same GDMO description. The GDMO description defines all the objects with their attributes together with the operations and notifications that can be managed. CMIP is also used for the Q3 interface of the TMN (Telecommunications Management network) model defined in ITU-T M.3000 standards.
CMIP is part of the seven layers of the OSI model.
