A UAFX Station supporting remote management shall support a Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF) server as defined in IETF RFC 7589 (NETCONF over TLS).

NOTE 1 This specification does not make use of SSH as a secure transport for NETCONF.

NOTE 2 A future release of this specification will define NETCONF capabilities (for both client and server) and YANG modules to be supported by a UAFX Station.

A single management entity controls all components of a UAFX Station. Figure 13 shows a UAFX Station comprised of two End Station Components and one Bridge Component, all controlled by a single management entity.

NETCONF messages are recommended to be transmitted using priority information defined for Remote Management in Table 1.
