28.3123GPPIntent driven management services for mobile networksManagement and orchestrationTS

Based on roles related to 5G networks and network slicing management defined in clause 4.8 in TS 28.530[X], different kinds of intents are applicable for different kinds of standardized reference interfaces.

Figure 4.1.2-1: High-level model of different kind of intents expressed by different roles

– Intent from Communication Service Customer (Intent-CSC): Intent from Communication Service Customer enables Communication Service Customer (CSC) to express which properties of a communication service the CSC may request from CSP without knowing how to do the detailed management for communication service. For example, Intent-CSC can be ‘Enable a V2X communication service for a group of vehicles in certain time’.

– Intent from Communication Service Provider (Intent-CSP): Intent from Communication Service Provider enables Communication Service Provider (CSP) to express an intent about what CSP would like to do for network without knowing how to do the detailed management for network. For example, Intent-CSP can be ‘Provide a network service supporting V2X communications for highway-417 to support 500 vehicles simultaneously’.

– Intent from Network Operator(Intent-NOP): Intent from Network Operator enables Network Operator (NOP) to provide what NOP would like to do for group of network elements (i.e. subnetwork) management and control without knowing how to do the detailed management for the network elements. For example, Intent-NOP can be ‘Provide a radio network service to satisfy the specified coverage requirements and UE throughput requirement in certain area’.
