The present document is part the 32.34x-series covering the 3rd Generation Partnership Project; Technical Specification Group Services and System Aspects; Telecommunication management; as identified below:
32.341: "File Transfer (FT) Integration Reference Point (IRP): Requirements"
32.342: "File Transfer (FT) Integration Reference Point (IRP): Information Service (IS)"
32.346: "File Transfer (FT) Integration Reference Point (IRP); Solution Set (SS) definitions"
The Itf-N interface is built up by a number of Integration Reference Points (IRP's) and a related Name Convention, which realize the functional capabilities over this interface. The basic structure of the IRP's is defined in TS 32.101
and TS 32.102
Network Elements (NEs) under management, element managers as well as network managers generate various management information stored in file format. This IRP is addressing how these file are exchanged through Itf-N as well as certain aspects of file management and maintenance. It is anticipated that all management functions (e.g. PM, Call Trace, CM) as well as associated IRP's making reuse of capabilities provided by this File Transfer IRP.
The present document specifies the overall requirements for the File Transfer Integration Reference Point (FT IRP) as it applies to the Itf-N.
