TMOC Mission

The Telecom Management and Operations Committee (TMOC) develops operations, administration, maintenance and provisioning standards, and other documentation related to Operations Support System (OSS) and Network Element (NE) functions and interfaces for communications networks – with an emphasis on standards development related to U.S.A. communication networks in coordination with the development of international standards.


The scope of the work in TMOC includes the development of standards and other documentation for communications network operations and management areas, such as: Configuration Management, Performance Management (including in-service transport performance management), Fault Management, Security Management (including management plane security), Accounting Management, Coding/Language Data Representation, Common/Underlying Management Functionality/Technology, and Ancillary Functions (such as network tones and announcements). This work requires close and coordinated working relationships with other domestic and international standards development organizations and industry forums.
