Optical burst switching (OBS) has been touted as a suitable technique to support the bursty IP datagrams over the future all-optical networks. This paper presents an information model on edge nodes of such an OBS network to provide management information at both optical burst layer and traditional WDM transport layer to understand, operate and manage these edge nodes. Managed objects corresponding to various components and resources inside edge nodes are illustrated. The structure of management information base (MIB) under the SNMP management interface for managing the identified parameters is also presented.
