The present document is part of a TS-family covering the 3rd Generation Partnership Project; Technical Specification Group Services and System Aspects; Telecommunication management, as identified below:

32.341: "File Transfer (FT) Integration Reference Point (IRP): Requirements".

32.342: "File Transfer (FT) Integration Reference Point (IRP): Information Service (IS)".

32.343: "File Transfer (FT) Integration Reference Point (IRP): Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) Solution Set (SS)".

32.345: "File Transfer (FT) Integration Reference Point (IRP): eXtensible Markup Language (XML) definitions".

32.347: "File Transfer (FT) Integration Reference Point (IRP): SOAP Solution Set (SS)".

The present document is part of a TS-family which describe the requirements and information model necessary for the Telecommunication Management (TM) of 3G systems. The TM principles and TM architecture are specified in 3GPP TS 32.101 [1] and 3GPP TS 32.102 [2].

Network Elements (NEs) under management, element managers as well as network managers generate various management information stored in file format. This IRP is addressing how these files are exchanged through Itf-N as well as certain aspects of file management and maintenance. It is anticipated that all management functions (e.g. PM, Call Trace, CM) as well as associated IRPs making reuse of capabilities provided by this File Transfer IRP.
