+# meta-google layer
+## Purpose
+Including this layer adds the following packages to your `obmc-phosphor-image`:
+* [google-ipmi-sys]( OEM IPMI Handler for providing specific information to the host.
+* [phosphor-ipmi-blobs]( OEM IPMI Blobs Handler for providing the framework for specific blob handlers.
+* [phosphor-ipmi-ethstats]( OEM IPMI Handler for reporting ethernet device statistics from the BMCs ethernet devices.
+## Customizations
+Presently, this layer also enables the Google Iana for registering `phosphor-ipmi-ethstats` in addition to the OpenBMC one.
