System Management Functions

There are a number of general functions not related to a particular TMN functional area or hierarchical layer, but basically applicable to all of them.  These functions are labelled Information technology (IT) — Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) — Systems Management functions (SMF), hence called SMFs or SMURFs, listed in M.3400, and defined individually in the X.7xx series (identical to ISO/IEC 10164-xx series).
