32.7413GPPConfiguration Management (CM)RequirementsSignalling Transport Network (STN) interface Network Resource Model (NRM) Integration Reference Point (IRP)Telecommunication managementTS

The following general and high-level requirements apply for the present IRP:

a) IRP-related requirements in 3GPP TS 32.101 [1].

b) IRP-related requirements in 3GPP TS 32.102 [2].

c) IRP-related requirements in 3GPP TS 32.600 [3].

In addition to the above, the following more specific requirements apply.

4.1 MTP3 Configuration Management

a) It shall be possible for IRPManager to retrieve configuration information related to MTP3 signalling managed entity.

b) When the configuration information of MTP3 signalling managed entities changes, corresponding notifications shall be generated to IRPManager.

c) When the status of MTP3 signalling managed entities changes, corresponding notifications shall be generated to IRPManager.

d) It shall be possible for IRPManager to identify which technology that the STN is based on (e. g. MTP3, MTP3B [4]);

e) The interface shall allow for the viewing of parameters of the MTP3 signalling point, MTP3 signalling link set termination point, MTP3 signalling link termination point, MTP3 signalling route and MTP3 signalling route set [4], [5], [7], [8].

4.2 M3UA Configuration Management

a) It shall possible for IRPManager to retrieve configuration information related to M3UA signalling managed entities.

b) When the configuration information of M3UA signalling managed entities changes, corresponding notifications shall be generated to IRPManager.

c) When the status of M3UA signalling managed entities changes, corresponding notifications shall be generated to IRPManager.

d) The interface shall allow for the viewing of parameters of the M3UA signalling point, M3UA signalling link set termination point, M3UA signalling link termination point, M3UA signalling route and M3UA signalling route set ([4], [11]).

4.3 Fault Management

Any fault detected by the signalling managed entity (including signalling point, signalling link set termination point, signalling link termination point, signalling route and signalling route set [4], [5], [7], [8]) shall be passed up to the IRPManager.

4.4 Performance Management

It shall be possible for IRPManager to collect and monitor performance data. The detailed mesurement data to be defined in 3GPP TS 32.403 [9].
