Inventory Management (IM), in general, provides the operator with the ability to assure correct and effective operation of the 3G network as it evolves. IM actions have the objective to monitor the actual configuration on the Network Elements (NEs) and Network Resources (NRs), and they may be initiated by the operator or by functions in the Operations Systems (OSs) or NEs. The final goal of IM is the establishment of an accurate and timely model of the actual inventory in the NEs or NRs.

The present document covers the Inventory Management (IM) Network Resource Model (NRM) Integration Reference Point (IRP): eXtensible Markup Language (XML) file format definition.
