The present document is part of a multi-part TS covering the 3rd Generation Partnership Project: Technical Specification Group Services and System Aspects; Telecommunication Management; Partial Suspension of Itf-N Integration Reference Point (IRP), as identified below:

32.381: "Partial Suspension of Itf-N Integration Reference Point (IRP); Requirements".

32.382: "Partial Suspension of Itf-N Integration Reference Point (IRP); Information Service (IS)".

32.383: "Partial Suspension of Itf-N Integration Reference Point (IRP); Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) Solution Set (SS)".

32.385: Partial Suspension of Itf-N Integration Reference Point (IRP); eXtensible Markup Language (XML) definitions.

32.387: "Partial Suspension of Itf-N Integration Reference Point (IRP); SOAP Solution Set (SS)".

The present document describes the requirements and information model necessary for Telecommunication Management (TM). The TM principles and TM architecture are specified in 3GPP TS 32.101 [1] and 3GPP TS 32.102 [2].

Information of an event is carried in notification. An IRPAgent (typically an EM or a NE) emits notifications (see 3GPP TS 32.302 [13]. IRPManager (typically a network management system) receives notifications. In certain scenarios floods of unwanted notifications including alarms will be sent to the IRP manager by network object instances. Thereby the interface and the management systems bear unnecessary load. Even worse: The operator’s awareness is drawn away from really urgent events.
