Additional management information elements of the BSS model for other management areas are defined in other GSM 12-series Specifications. For example, the management information related to the performance Management Functional Area is to be found in TS 12.04
. See TS 12.00
for a complete overview of the GSM 12-series specifications.
In addition to the formal GDMO definitions, additional information is included to aid in understanding the model and its elements. Summary descriptions, containment and inheritance diagrams, and entity relationship diagrams are provided for this purpose.
The general management information contained in the models specified in CCITT M.3100 and CCITT X.7xx Recommendations is referenced in this ETS but the formal definitions are contained in the referenced documents.
