We typically use something like "TGE-trunk-HER.CORE-Te6/1" or
"FE-access-AAR-SNA-KMD-Fa0/0", mentioning local end link hardware and
type, and remote end name and interface.

On interface down/up we extract the description and sends it along with
the alert.

We're an enterprise network though, not service provider. :-)
