This document sets out a number of independent operator activity contexts where each context has been chosen to exercise one or more of the operator requirements and to lead to points of intersection of the network model work of 3GPP and TM Forum where some degree of harmonisation would consequently seem valuable.
Each context description focuses on one or more use cases that suitably describe the relevant details of that operator activity with respect to an expected area of intersection. The use cases are first explained and then depicted via one or more stylized network and model diagrams. The model diagram is then developed to a formal model structure.
Finally the set of changes proposed cumulated from all context analyses are provided as a coherent recommendation. Respective concrete models must use this model to support the FMC use cases to claim FMC network management compliance.
It should be noted that the UIM cannot be used directly for implementation. Implementation classes must be derived from those in the UIM by Inheritance or some other appropriate mechanism. Classes derived from those in the UIM (e.g. for the fixed environment) must use different names from those used in the UIM.
This content of this document has been jointly developed by 3GPP and TM Forum as part of the Joint Working Group on Resource Model Alignment.
