The purpose of this TS is to define a common service supported by all IRPs such as AlarmIRP. This TS is the "Information Service" part. It defines, for the purpose of supporting the common service, the information observable and controllable by management system's client (i.e. IRPManager) via the Itf-N. It also specifies the semantics of and the interactions used to carry this information.
With this common service supported by all IRPs, an IRPManager can retrieve the profile of operations and notifications supported by a given IRP name-contained by an IRPAgent. An IRPManager can also retrieve the IRPVersions supported by a given IRP.
