This document describes the object factory Application Programmer Interface (API) for the three VMware Smart Assurance Optical Transport Manager (OTM) domains: SONET/SDH, Low Order SONET/SDH, and WDM. The object factory API is used to directly interact with the OTM Domain Managers for these three OTM domains.

This document only covers the existing API capabilities. As part of an effort to improve and enhance the performance and capabilities of its product lines, the API and this document will be updated to reflect any changes or enhancements made to the API. Therefore, some functions described in this document may not be supported by all versions of OTM or hardware currently in use.
