Summary:  with a potential issue.

Page11, Section 4.5: 
Missing signal degradation or partial fault management. Radio link is heavily impacted by weather. Rain/cloud can make a radio link lose up to 50% of its capacity. Therefore, it will be quite useful to report the effective bandwidth of the radio link.

Some questions: 

Page 6: Can one Radio Link be shared by multiple Carrier Terminations?  If yes, are those multiple Carrier Terminations terminated at one physical device?

Page 7: do you mean “key goal or key purpose of this work” in the following sentence? 
“The adoption of an SDN framework for management and control the microwave interface is one of the key applications for this work.”

Page 10, Section 4.1.2: What does “over the hop” mean in the first sentence? Isn’t it same as “… establish L1 connectivity to an associated radio link…”?

Major issues:  N/A

Minor issues:

Nits/editorial comments:
