The present document investigates management aspects of 4G IoT related functionalities such as eMTC and NB-IoT
RAN Features, DÉCOR etc. to make recommendations if such functionalities should be addressed in the normative
phase to enhance existing SA5 OAM specifications.
The aspects analysed are:
CM, PM and FM aspects
Use cases and potential requirements for the corresponding network management functionalities.
Potential impact of virtualization of the corresponding Core Network nodes.
Automation of the management of the selected functionalities for self-optimisation, self-healing etc.
Potential solutions and whether they affect the 3GPP specifications.
