This TS specifies the protocol neutral EPC Network Resource Model IRP Information Service, through which an 'IRPAgent' (typically an Element Manager or Network Element) can communicate information to one or several 'IRPManagers' (typically Network Managers) concerning EPC resources. It reuses relevant parts of the Generic NRM in TS 32.622
, either by direct reuse or sub-classing, and in addition to that defines EPC specific Information Object Classes.
In order to access the information defined by this NRM, an Interface IRP such as the "Basic CM IRP" is needed (TS 32.602
). However, which Interface IRP is applicable is outside the scope of this TS.
