5.2.1 Attributes and relationships

This subclause depicts the set of information object classes (IOCs) that encapsulate information within the Generic State Management IRP. The intent is to identify the information required for the State Management IRP implementation of its operations and notification emission. This subclause provides the overview of all information object classes in UML. Subsequent subclauses provide more detailed specification of various aspects of these information object classes.

5.2.2 Inheritance

There are no inheritance relationships.

5.3 Information object classes definition

5.3.1 StateManagementEntity

5.3.1.1 Definition

StateManagementEntity is a Archetype, that may represent any IOC defined in the Network Resource Models, e.g. Generic Network Resource Model, Core Network Resource Model, UTRAN Network Resource Model or GERAN Network Resource Model.

The attributes defined for this Archetype can be imported and used in any IOC of the Network Resource Models, where such attributes are needed. These attributes shall be used in the same way as defined in the ITU‑T Recommendation X.731 [7] and ITU‑T Recommendation X.733 [8], unless otherwise stated. That document gives also examples of state diagrams, defining possible state transitions when one or more of the state attributes defined here are used in a class.

5.4 Information attributes definition

5.4.1 Definition and legal values

The following table gives the definition and legal values for each attribute.

Attribute Name

Definition

Legal Values

operationalState

It indicates the operational state of the object instance. "It describes whether or not the resource is physically installed and working." [7] This attribute is READ-ONLY.

"Enabled", "Disabled"

The meaning of these values is as defined in ITU‑T Recommendation X.731 [7].

usageState

It indicates the usage state of the object instance. "It describes whether or not the resource is actively in use at a specific instant, and if so, whether or not it has spare capacity for additional users at that instant." [7] This attribute is READ-ONLY.

"Idle", "Active", "Busy"

The meaning of these values is as defined in ITU‑T Recommendation X.731 [7].

administrativeState

It indicates the administrative state of the object instance. "It describes the permission to use or prohibition against using the resource, imposed through the management services." [7]

"Locked", "Shutting down", "Unlocked"

The meaning of these values is as defined in ITU‑T Recommendation X.731 [7].

alarmStatus

It indicates the alarm status of the object instance. This is mapped to the perceived severity of the most severe active alarm associated to the object instance.

"Cleared", "Indeterminate", "Warning", "Minor", "Major", "Critical", The meaning of these values is as defined for the attribute perceived severity in ITU‑T Recommendation X.733 [8].

proceduralStatus

It indicates the procedural status of the object instance.

A set consisting of zero or more of the following values:

"Initialisation required", "Not initialised", "Initialising", "Reporting", "Terminating". The meaning of these values is as defined in ITU‑T Recommendation X.731 [7].

availabilityStatus

It indicates the availability status of the object instance.

A set consisting of zero or more of the following values:

"In test", "Failed", "Power off", "Off line", "Off duty", "Dependency", "Degraded", "Not installed", "Log full"

The meaning of these values is as defined in ITU‑T Recommendation X.731 [7].

controlStatus

It indicates the control status of the object instance.

A set consisting of zero or more of the following values:

"Subject to test", "Part of services locked", "Reserved for test", "Suspended" .

The meaning of these values is as defined in ITU‑T Recommendation X.731 [7].

standbyStatus

It indicates the standby status of the object instance.

"Hot standby", "Cold standby", "Providing service", .

The meaning of these values is as defined in ITU‑T Recommendation X.731 [7].

UnknownStatus

It indicates whether the state of the resource represented by the managed object is unknown.

"True" (state is unknown, the values of the state attributes may not reflect the actual state of the resource);

"False" (state is known, the values of the state attributes reflect the actual state of the resource).
