The specification and implementation of Xcoop interfaces has received great attention in the last few years. In fact, the appropriate design of this system component is a key aspect for efficient and seamless co-operative management. In this context it is worth mentioning the EURESCOM P408 project and the standards of the European Telecommunication Standards Institute (ETSI) in Europe and the ITU-T and Telemanagement Forum related work worldwide. The Xcoop specification presented in this paper, produced as part of the results of the project MISA co-funded by the Commission of the European Union, is a step ahead in the evolution of this system interface. Distinguished from preceding works, this one allows interactions between management systems independently to the underlying network technology, ATM, SDH or hybrid. This is achieved by defining appropriate functionality and an information model, indeed, where the specific characteristics of ATM and SDH resources are abstracted and merged in common classes.
