The intuition our group had years ago was that we could leverage Semantic Web technologies to identify the exchangeable knowledge required to federate networks. We proved that we can manage the complexity and heterogeneity of the Internet with semantically rich models.

The result of this work has been the definition of the INDL ontologies. INDL was the first language of this type, and the community embraced it internationally. INDL has become the foundation of the OMN language, an international effort that see the participation and adoption from colleagues from all over the world.
