The present document is the result of the Multi-SDO JWG on Model Alignment which 3GPP TSG SA WG5 (SA5) has
developed jointly with TMF and NGMN, and which does not fully follow the 3GPP templates and drafting rules.
Therefore 3GPP SA5 has desired to keep the present document as similar as possible to the original, for comparison
with the corresponding TMF version.
Thus 3GPP SA5 has done only the strictly necessary changes from the 3GPP drafting rules perspective in order to
publish the present document as a 3GPP Technical Report.
As a result of the analysis of the requirements for the harmonization of the 3GPP and TM Forum Information Models in
the context of FMC basic use cases were developed 3GPP TR 32.833, TM Forum TR 166. These use cases led to
the recognition that it would be necessary to define common operation model elements applicable for wire-line and
wireless networks. The present document defines these common model elements.
To be noted:
The Umbrella Operation Model (UOM) described in the present document provides the set of
interfaces/operations etc. that have been agreed for convergence to strengthen consistency of representation and
semantics of network management operations in the fixed and mobile environments.
The UOM is necessary but not sufficient for implementation.
The UOM cannot be used directly for implementation. Implementation classes must be derived from those in the
UOM by Inheritance or some other appropriate mechanism.
Classes derived from those in the UOM (e.g. for the fixed environment) may use different names from those
used in the UOM.
