The Interoperability that CORBA Provides

For advanced telecommunications and data communications equipment, CORBA's object-oriented IDL is an efficient way to define complex objects, such as those supported by asynchronous transfer mode (ATM), Synchronous Optical Network (SONET), cellular and voice-over-IP (VoIP) equipment. IDL information models can be much more efficient and readable than their SNMP or Guidelines for the Definition of Managed Objects (GDMO) equivalents. In addition, CORBA works with SNMP, the Common Management Information Protocol (CMIP), and most major element-management and network-management platforms. To simplify the migration from SNMP and CMIP to CORBA, the TeleManagement Forum (TMF) and OMG (Object Management Group) have defined standard mappings between the information models and protocols.
