This TR studies how to allow the two organizations (3GPP and TMF) to evolve their respective NRMs
and SID in a manner that they would become aligned to support consistent and integrated management of mobile and
fixed networks. This study:
identifies the non-aligned, contradicting or overlapping parts between NRMs and SID
identifies the non-aligned, contradicting or overlapping parts regarding specification methodology
proposes possibilities to align the parts identified above;
ensures that the proposal allows usage of the 3GPP Generic NRM IRP independently of SID
ensures that the proposal allows usage of mobile specific NRMs to be used as they are
drives the alignment process with TMF
identifies any required changes in the 3GPP specifications
identifies required changes in the TMF specifications to be communicated to the TMF
ensures that 3GPP remains full owner of the aligned part of the NRM specifications
defines a procedure how aligned specifications can be maintained and updated in a consistent manner
Special emphasis has been given to the borderline between generic and harmonized part and the network technology
specific parts of the models. In case new requirements had been identified during the alignment process, they have been taken into account as well.
It is not intended to add the mobile specific parts of the 3GPP Network Resource Models to the TMF SID.
These model aspects are published by 3GPP only. Interface aspects (e. g. the Alarm IRP) are outside of the scope of this Study.
