3.1 Definitions

For the purposes of the present document, the terms and definitions given in TS 32.150 [16], TS 32.101 [1], TS 32.102 [2] and TS 21.905 [17] and the following apply.

Association: In general it is used to model relationships between Managed Objects. Associations can be implemented in several ways, such as:

  1. name bindings,
  2. reference attributes, and
  3. association objects.

This IRP stipulates that containment associations shall be expressed through name bindings, but it does not stipulate the implementation for other types of associations as a general rule. These are specified as separate entities in the object models (UML diagrams).

Managed Element (ME): An instance of the Information Object Class ManagedElement defined in TS 32.622 [6].

eNodeB: A logical node responsible for radio transmission/reception in one or more cells to/from the User Equipment.
It terminates the S1 interface towards the EPC.
