32.106-33GPPCommon Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) Solution Set (SS)Configuration Management (CM)Part 3: Notification Integration Reference Point (IRP)Telecommunication managementTS

Configuration Management (CM), in general, provides the operator with the ability to assure correct and effective operation of the 3G network as it evolves. CM actions have the objective to control and 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.

CM actions may be requested as part of an implementation programme (e.g. additions and deletions), as part of an optimisation programme (e.g. modifications), and to maintain the overall Quality of Service (QoS). The CM actions are initiated either as a single action on a NE of the 3G network or as part of a complex procedure involving actions on many NEs.

The Itf-N interface for CM is built up by a number of Integration Reference Points (IRPs) and a related Name Convention, which realise the functional capabilities over this interface. The basic structure of the IRPs is defined in ITU-T Recommendation X.736 [1] and OMG TC Document telecom [2]. For CM, a number of IRPs (and the Name Convention) are defined herein, used by this as well as other specifications for Telecom Management (TM) produced by 3GPP. All these are included in 3GPP TS 32.106 from Part 2 and onwards.

The present document is Part 3 of 3GPP TS 32.106 (3GPP TS 32.106-3) – Notification IRP CORBA Solution Set.

IRP Solution Set version: The version of this CORBA Solution Set is 1:1, where the first “1” means that it corresponds to the Information Service (3GPP TS 32.106-2 [5]) version 1, and the second “1” means that it is the first CORBA Solution Set corresponding to this Information Service version.
