About This Chapter


This chapter describes the technology features of XML NBI.
1.1 Introduction
By bringing together modern software technologies and state-of-the-art technology models, the
TM Forum has enabled the birth of a new interface standard, the Multi-Technology Operations
Systems Interface (MTOSI). MTOSI will facilitate application-to-application inter-working,
reduce time of deployment, and lower the cost of ownership of Operations Software and Systems
(OSS). Service providers will gain leverage by being able to integrate systems from multiple
vendors with a minimum of "integration tax."
1.2 Standards and Protocols Compliance
The upper-level integrated NMS and OSS can communicate with the iManager U2000 that is
compliant with the MTOSI standards by using the MTOSI. In this way, the upper-level integrated
NMS and OSS can manage Huawei transport equipment, routers equipment, security equipment
and metro ethernet equipment) in a centralized manner.
1.3 Position of the XML NBI in the Integrated NMS
This section describes the position of XML NBI in the integrated NMS.
1.4 Supported Domains and Functions
The U2000 XML NBI provide alarm management, service provisioning, inventory management,
and performance management and can be integrated with the upper-layer OSS easily.
1.5 System Structure
This topic describes the system structure of the U2000 XML NBI.
1.6 Technical Specifications
This topic describes the performance indicators of the U2000 XML NBIs to provide a reference
for the interconnection with the OSS.

1.1 Introduction
By bringing together modern software technologies and state-of-the-art technology models, the
TM Forum has enabled the birth of a new interface standard, the Multi-Technology Operations
Systems Interface (MTOSI). MTOSI will facilitate application-to-application inter-working,
reduce time of deployment, and lower the cost of ownership of Operations Software and Systems
(OSS). Service providers will gain leverage by being able to integrate systems from multiple
vendors with a minimum of "integration tax."
With reference to the MTOSI recommendations, the XML interface of the U2000 is developed
for iManager U2000. Network management systems of different levels can communicate with
one another by using the MTOSI. The application of the MTOSI can meet the trends of the
integration of network management systems and the development of cross-domain network
management systems.

1.2 Standards and Protocols Compliance


The upper-level integrated NMS and OSS can communicate with the iManager U2000 that is
compliant with the MTOSI standards by using the MTOSI. In this way, the upper-level integrated
NMS and OSS can manage Huawei transport equipment, routers equipment, security equipment
and metro ethernet equipment) in a centralized manner.
The MTOSI is compliant with the TMF standards as follows:
l

TMF518

TMF612

TMF864

The MTOSI can realize the standard interface functions as follows:


l

Query and notification of the physical inventory

Alarm reporting

Alarm query

Acknowledgement and unacknowledgement of alarms

CAUTION
The alarm handling capability of the CORBA NBI depends on many factors, such as alarm
quantity on the live network, and CPU performance and memory size of the server. If an alarm
storm occurs, the CORBA NBI will possibly reach its handling limit. The CORBA NBI can
report a maximum of 1,000,000 alarms within one hour. To ensure the stability of the system,
the CORBA NBI will discard some alarms if the alarm quantity exceeds 1,000,000. You are
recommended to handle network faults instantly if an alarm storm occurs. Also, the OSS is
suggested to synchronize alarms actively at proper times, for example, when the system is idle.

2 Principles

2.1 Description of Involved Technology


This section describes the related technology and concept involved in this document.

MTOSI
Multi-Technology Operations System Interface (MTOSI) is a standard for implementing
interfaces between OSSs. Service providers (carriers) use multiple Operational Support Systems
(OSS) to manage complex networks. Since the various parts of the network must interact with
the OSSs. It is standardized by the Tele-management Forum (TM Forum). The TMF NGOSS
provides a set of reference models that aid in analyzing and designing next generation BSS and
OSS solutions that may utilize the MTOSI interface specifications.

JMS
The Java Message Service (JMS) API is a Java Message Oriented Middleware (MOM) API for
sending messages between two or more clients. JMS is a specification developed under the Java
Community Process as JSR 914. The JMS API supports the following models:
l

Point-to-point or queuing model.

Publish and subscribe model.

In the point-to-point or queuing model, a producer posts messages to a particular queue and a
consumer reads messages from the queue. Here, the producer knows the destination of the
message and posts the message directly to the consumer's queue. It is characterized by the
following rule:
l

Only one consumer gets the message.

The producer does not have to be running at the time the receiver consumes the message,
nor does the receiver need to be running at the time the message is sent.

Every message successfully processed is acknowledged by the receiver.

The publish/subscribe model supports publishing messages to a particular message topic. Zero
or more subscribers may register interest in receiving messages on a particular message topic.
In this model, neither the publisher nor the subscribers know about each other. A good metaphor
for it is anonymous bulletin board. The following is the characteristics of this model.
l

Multiple consumers obtain the message.

There is a timing dependency between publishers and subscribers. The publisher has to
create a subscription in order for clients to be able to subscribe. The subscriber has to remain
continuously active to receive messages, unless it has established a durable subscription.
In that case, messages published while the subscriber is not connected are redistributed
whenever it reconnect.

Using Java, JMS provides a way of separating the application from the transport layer of
providing data. The same Java classes are used to communicate with different JMS
providers by using the JNDI information for the desired provider. The classes first use a
connection factory to connect to the queue or topic, and then use populate and send or
publish the messages. On the receiving side, the clients then receive or subscribe to the
messages.

Web Service
The W3C defines a Web Service as a software system designed to support interoperable Machine
to Machine interaction over a network. Web Service is frequently just Web APIs that are accessed

over a network, such as the Internet, and executed on a remote system hosting the requested
services. The W3C Web Service definition encompasses many different systems, but in common
usage the term refers to clients and servers that communicate using XML messages that follow
the SOAP standard. Common in both the field and the terminology is the assumption that there
is also a machine readable description of the operations supported by the server, a description
in the Web Service Description Language (WSDL). The latter is not a requirement of a SOAP
endpoint, but it is a prerequisite for automated client-side code generation in the mainstream
Java and .NET SOAP Frameworks. Some industry organizations, such as the WS-I, mandate
both SOAP and WSDL in their definition of a Web Service.

HTTP(S)
Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is a communications protocol used to transfer or convey
information on the World Wide Web. HTTP is a request/response protocol between clients and
servers. The client making an HTTP request, such as a web browser, spider, or other end-user
tool - is referred to as the user agent. The responding server, which stores or creates resources
such as HTML files and images, is called the origin server.

WSDL
The Web Service Description Language (WSDL) is a XML-based language that provides a
model for describing Web Service. The WSDL defines services as collections of network
endpoints, or ports. WSDL specification provides an XML format for documents for this
purpose. The abstract definition of ports and messages is separated from their concrete use or
instance, allowing the reuse of these definitions. A port is defined by associating a network
address with a reusable binding, and a collection of ports define a service. Messages are abstract
descriptions of the data being exchanged, and port types are abstract collections of supported
operations. The concrete protocol and data format specifications for a particular port type
constitutes a reusable binding, where the messages and operations are then bound to a concrete
network protocol and message format. In this way, WSDL describes the public interface to the
Web Service.

SOAP
Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) is a protocol for exchanging XML-based messages over
computer networks, normally using HTTP/HTTPS. SOAP forms the foundation layer of the
Web Service stack, providing a basic messaging framework upon which abstract layers can be
built.

XML
The eXtensible Markup Language (XML) is a general-purpose markup language. It is classified
as an extensible language, because it allows its users to define their own tags. Its primary purpose
is to facilitate the sharing of structured data across different information systems, particularly
through internet. It is used both to encode documents and serialize data.

2.2 Working Principles of an XML NBI


The U2000 XML NBI adopts the Web Service technology. Web Service is a technology for
accessing network services. It defines services through WSDL or XSD and implements the
communication through the SOAP message. In addition, it supports various transmission
protocols, such as HTTP, HTTPS, and JMS. The following describes the principles of the XML

Defining Services Through WSDL or XSD


l

The WSDL or XSD is a type of XML document.

The XSD describes the data type and message format.

The WSDL describes the external services and interface, and the bound transmission
protocols, such as HTTP, HTTPS, and JMS.

Implementing the Communication Through the SOAP Message


l

SOAP defines the data format that is irrelevant to the transmission protocol.

The SOAP message can be enveloped as the message of any protocol for transmission.

Figure 2-1 SOAP message

Adopting the HTTP as the Key Protocol for Request Response of an Interface

2-4

The cost of developing the client and server by using HTTP is lower than that by using
other protocols.

The HTTP protocol is relatively mature and is supported by most of systems.

Usually, a firewall does not block the HTTP-based communication. Therefore, HTTP can
penetrate a firewall.

Messages are transmitted in HTTPS encryption mode.

Adopting the JMS as the Notification Bus


l

Subscription and unsubscription of various notification resources, such as inventory and


alarms
You can subscribe to one type of notifications or multiple types of notifications.

One to many notification sending


Multiple users can subscribe to the same type of notifications. That is, the notifications
can be sent to multiple users at the same time.

Saving of notifications as a file


The message middleware can save notification messages in a physical medium. After
an OSS subscribes to a type of notifications, if the OSS goes offline due to a fault, the
OSS can receive the notifications sent during the offline period when the OSS goes
online.

Flexible setting of filter criteria


When subscribing to a type of notifications, you can specify the filter criteria. Currently,
you can set filter criteria only for alarms. In this way, only the notifications that meet
the filter criteria are sent to you.

This topic describes the background information and the terms involved in the process of
deploying and configuring the northbound interface.

Attention Item
l

Northbound interface is an optional component of the U2000. A license is required for


using this function.

If you do not install the northbound interface component during the installation of the
U2000, you need to add it manually.

The northbound interface is a System single-instance deployment package. Therefore, only


one instance can be deployed.

CAUTION
l After the northbound interface component is installed or added, you need to add a
corresponding instance and configure parameters. Then, the U2000 can start the NBI-related
process.
l After initializing the database of the U2000, you need to configure the northbound interface
instance again.
l After the northbound interface instance is configured, you need to restart all the NMS
services.

Terms
The following explains certain confusable terms:
l

Component: It is the software function unit that can be selected for installation. A
component can consist of multiple deployment packages.

Deployment package: It is the software unit that is deployed on a PC. In a distributed system,
the deployment packages of a component may be deployed on different PCs.
Deployment packages are classified into the following types:
System single-instance: Such deployment packages can be installed on only one server
and the server can be deployed with only one instance.
Single-server single-instance: Such deployment packages can be installed on multiple
servers and each server can be deployed with only one instance.
Single-server multi-instance: Such deployment packages can be installed on multiple
servers and each server can be deployed with multiple instances.
NOTE

The type of northbound interface deployment package is System single-instance.

software configuration is required for the installation of the U2000 XML interface.
For details of software requirements U2000 Server, refer to section "Configuration
Requirements" in the iManager U2000 Software Installation Guide.

License
The U2000 controls the functions and available resources of the XML NBI through a license.
If you want to enable the XML interface, you need to purchase the U2000 license. Ensure the
license support XML interface function before deploying the XML NBI.
For details, see A Relations Between License and XML Interface. If the license does not
support the functions or resources needed, contact Huawei engineers to apply for the license.

Prerequisite
l

The server of the NMS Maintenance Suite must be started.

The client and the server of the NMS Maintenance Suite must communicate with each other
normally.

Context
In normal cases, the NMS Maintenance Suite server starts along with the OS. You can do as
follows to check whether the NMS Maintenance Suite server is started:
l

In the Windows OS, check whether the msdaemon.exe and msserver.exe processes are
started in the Task Manager window. If you can find the two processes in the process list,
it indicates that the NMS Maintenance Suite server is started. Otherwise, open the DOS
window and run the following command to start the NMS Maintenance Suite server:
> net start nodemgr

In the Solaris or SUSE Linux OS, run the following command as the root user to check
whether the NMS Maintenance Suite server is started:
# ps -ef | grep java

If ./engineering/jre/jre_unix/bin/java is displayed, it indicates that the NMS Maintenance


Suite server is started. Otherwise, run the following commands to start the NMS
Maintenance Suite server:
# cd /opt/HWENGR/engineering
# ./startserver.sh

Procedure
1 On a computer installed with the NMS Maintenance Suite client, double-click the U2000
MSuite shortcut icon on the desktop and then wait about one minute. The Login dialog box is
displayed.
NOTE

l In the Solaris OS, you must log in to the Java desktop system as the root user. Otherwise, the U2000
MSuite shortcut icon is not displayed on the desktop.
l In the SUSE Linux OS, you cannot log in to the NMS Maintenance Suite client through the shortcut
icon. You need to run the following commands as the root user to start the NMS Maintenance Suite
client:
# cd /opt/HWENGR/engineering
# ./startclient.sh

2 Set the related login parameters.


The login parameters are described as follows:
l IP Address: It refers to the system IP address of the computer where the NMS Maintenance
Suite server resides. In a distributed system, you need to enter the system IP address of the
master server.
l Port No.: The default port number is 12212. You do not need to change the default value
during login.
l User Name: The default user name is admin.
l Password: The initial password is admin.

3.4 Checking the XML NBI Status


After check the license and ensure it is support XML functions, you need to check the current
status of XML NBI, and deploy the XML NBI according the status.

Context
The XML NBI is one of the components of U2000. The installation of the XML NBI is integrated
in the process of installing the U2000 server. There are two cases of the installation.
l

If the XML NBI is not installed during the installation of the U2000 server, to enable the
interface, you need to add the component first and then add the instance. For details, see
3.5 Deploying the XML NBI for the First Time.

If the XML NBI is installed during the installation of the U2000 server, to enable the
interface, you need to configure the instance. For details, see 3.6 Configuring the XML
NBI.

The details for how to install the U2000 Server, refer to iManager U2000 Software Installation
Guide. If you want to install XML NBI, ensure you have select Northbound XML Interface
component during the installation of the U2000 server.

Procedure
1 Log in to the client of the NMS Maintenance Suite. For details, see 3.3 Logging in to the Client

4 Maintaining the XML NBI

4.1 Requirements for Maintenance Staff


This section describes the requirements for maintenance staff.
To guarantee the smooth maintenance and rapid problem solving, the maintenance staff are
required to have the following experiences:
l

Be familiar with the basic operations of the PC, Sun workstation, Windows, Solaris and
Linux operating systems.

Have a good understanding of the XML technology.

Understand concepts of the telecommunication management network (TMN) and know the
basic networking architecture of the U2000 well.

Be familiar with the configuration and the operations of enabling and disabling the
U2000 XML interface.
NOTE

For maintenance of the workstation, refer to the maintenance manual provided by its supplier.

4.2 Routine Maintenance


By Routine Maintenance, faults such as malfunction in the system operation can be detected in
time and countermeasures are adopted to properly handle the problem. In this way, hidden
troubles are cleared to prevent the occurrence of an accident. It is recommended that you perform
routine maintenance once a week.

Checking the XML Service


l

When the U2000 single server is running, log in to the client of Sysmonitor which monitors
the U2000 process. Check whether the XML Service processes are running properly.

In the U2000 high availability system, run the following command in the active server to
query the operating status of the XML Service processes.
# ps -ef | grep xml

The XML service operates normally only when the outputs of the XML Service process
have their respective IDs
NOTE

The active server refers to the host computer in use. Normally, a high availability system uses only one
active server.
If the JMS service is started, you need to check whether the JMS service process is started. The method
of checking the JMS service process is the same as that of the XML service.

Backing up the logs of the U2000 XML Interface


The log information of the U2000 XML interface is saved in the %IMAPROOT%\server\log
\nbi directory. Back up the log files regularly in case they occupy too much of the system disk
space. The log files records the running information of the U2000 XML interface and the
operation performed by the NMS/OSS through the U2000 XML interface. If an error occurs
when the U2000 XML interface is running, you can refer to the log files to do the troubleshooting.
If you want to back up the log information of the U2000 XML interface, manually copy the log
information to a specified directory.

NOTE

In the case of the Solaris OS and Linux OS, the environment variable is represented by $Variable (Variable
indicates the name of the variable).
In the case of the Windows OS, the environment variable is represented by %Variable% (Variable
indicates the name of the variable).
The environment variable $IMAP corresponds to the installation directory of the U2000 server.
l In the case of the Solaris OS and Linux OS, the U2000 server is installed in the /opt/U2000/server
directory by default. Hence, $IMAP corresponds to /U2000/server/conf.
l In the case of the Windows OS, the U2000 server is installed in the C:\U2000\server directory by
default, Hence, %IMAP% corresponds to C:\U2000\server\conf and %IMAPROOT% corresponds
to C:\U2000.

4.3 Logging In to the System Monitor Client


The U2000 System Monitor Client uses the client/server model. To perform an operation, you
need to log in to the server through the U2000 client.

Prerequisite
Before login, ensure that the U2000 client and server are connected normally, and the server
works correctly.

Context
l

The default port number of the server is 31030. Do not change it in normal conditions.
Otherwise, you cannot log in to the U2000 server.

The login mode is classified into the SSL mode and the common mode. In SSL mode, the
data is encrypted when being transmitted between the client and the server. In common
mode, the data is not encrypted during transmission.

The port used for login in common mode is different from that in SSL mode. The port is
31030 in common mode, and 31080 in security (SSL) mode.

If you do not log in during the preset period after the previous login, the U2000 disables
or delete the user account.

If you never use a new user account for login, the account is not restricted to these rules,

4.9.3 Whether the U2000 XML Interface is Licensed

4.9.1 Failure in Starting the U2000 XML Interface


Possible Cause
A failure in starting the U2000 XML interface is usually caused by incorrect configuration of
the configuration file.
It is recommended that you perform the following steps:

Procedure
1 Open the %IMAPROOT%\server\nbi\xml\conf\communicate.cfg configuration file. Check
whether the configuration items (such as IP address, port, mode, and license file path) of MDP
are correct. If the configuration items are incorrect, configure the XML interface instance again
by following 3 Deploying and Configuring the XML NBI.
2 Open the %IMAPROOT%\server\nbi\xml\conf\database.cfg configuration file. Check
whether the configuration items (such as database type, IP address, and port) of the database are
correct. If the configuration items are incorrect, configure the XML interface instance again by
following 3 Deploying and Configuring the XML NBI.
----End

4.9.2 Whether the U2000 Successfully Enables the XML Interface


l

In the window of the System Monitor, view whether XML Service process is in the running
state. If so, it indicates that the XML interface is started successfully.

To determine whether the XML interface is started, do as follows: enter the WSDL address
of the Web service that the system should support in the browser and check whether the
output is correct.
In the browser, enter http://server IP:port/OperationsSystemRetrieval?wsdl. If the
WSDL definition is displayed in the browser, it indicates that the XML interface is
started successfully.

B.2 Notes and Precautions


In the practical communication process, the source (the server) and the sink (the client) use
relevant ports. Usually you only need to specify the source port, and the sink port is dynamically
created.
Note the following during the project implementation:
l

The service ports used by the NMS should not be closed. Run the following command to
view the system service ports:

netstat -an

If there are routers or firewalls between the source and the sink, check all ports used by the
source and the sink. Make sure that these ports can be normally turned up to support the
communication between the sources and sinks.

"EquipmentHolder".
The values of domain include sdh, wdm, eth,
atm, sonnet, and ptn. Only the transport
equipment has these attributes. The port
names of the equipment of other domains,
such as route and security, do not contain the
domain field. For the IP domain, there is a
cli_name field after the port field, for

Service

All Services are characterized as either being


a realization of a Product (CustomerFacingService) facing the Customer or how a
Service is provisioned within a provider's
infrastructure (ResourceFacingService)
facing the resources. Services are defined by
a ServiceSpecification. The purpose of the
specification is twofold. First, it is used to
define attributes, methods, and relationships
that are common to all Services. Second, it
provides a convenient point to define how
Services interact with other parts business
entities.

Service Access Point

A point of entry where the service can be


accessed. This point of entry is always
associated (directly or indirectly) with a
physical resource (such as a PTP, a CTP).
However, sometimes the SAP is an object or
a logical resource that contains or identifies
the support of the physical resource.
(Customer Premise Equipment, a Mobile
Terminal, a Set-top Box, an internet address).

ServiceCatalog

A grouping of Service Specifications that


share common characteristics. For example
one catalog could group all internet related
Service Specifications.

ServiceCharacteristicValue

A ServiceCharacteristicValue is a value
passed over the Activation Interface to
convey an individually set service
characteristic (i.e. not reference in a
ServiceTemplate) or to override a globally set
characteristic value (present in a
ServiceTemplate). A ServiceCharacteristicValue will apply only to the specific Service
instance created.

ServiceDefinition

A type of Service Specification (from the


SID) introduced for the purposes of Service
Fulfillment. It defines ALL the
ServiceSpecCharacteristics that must be used
to create corresponding Service instances:
l the ones which are set globally (the
corresponding values are defined only in
ServiceTemplates and are sometimes
designated as "invariant")
l and the ones which are set individually
(the corresponding values can be defined
only over the Activation Interface and are
sometimes designated as "variant").
A ServiceSpecCharacteristic specified in a
ServiceDefinition may be associated with
ServiceSpecCharacteristicValues to restrict
the typing information or to specify a default
value.

F-4

ServiceOrderr

A Service Order is a type of request (as


defined in the SID model). In particular, a
service order is used to track and control the
progress of a request for some action (e.g.,
provision or activation) on the services that
comprise a given product instance. It should
be mentioned that the OSS/J Order
Management API (JSR 264) defines Service
Order as follows: "A type of Request that
represents a Customer Order's products
decomposed into the services through which
the products are realized. Service Orders are
generated within the confines of the SM&O
layer."

ServiceOrderItem

Service Order Items are used to represent the


order aspects of the services associated with
a given service order. There is one service
order item for each service associated with a
service order.

ServiceRequest

A request made by the CRM layer to the


SM&O layer as defined in the TMForum
eTOM to take an action on one or more CFS
instances given a product identifier, a product
specification name and a related set of
characteristics. This request can be realized
by Template and by Value.

ServiceSpecCharacteristic

A characteristic quality or distinctive feature


of a Service as represented in a
ServiceSpecification (specialized as
ServiceDefinition or ServiceTemplate). In
particular it contains typing information
which can be arbitrarily complex. A Service
Spec Characteristic can be atomic or
composite (also called "packages"). The
components of a composite Service Spec
Characteristic can in turn be atomic or
composite.

ServiceSpecCharacteristicValue

A value that can be associated with a


ServiceSpecCharacteristic in conformance
with the specified typing information.
l When associated with a
ServiceSpecCharacteristic in a
ServiceDefinition, it is used to restrict the
typing information (in this case several
ServiceSpecCharacteristicValues may be
used) or to specify additional information
(e.g. default value).
l When associated with a
ServiceSpecCharacteristic in a
ServiceTemplate, it will apply globally to
all the Service instances conformant to
this ServiceTemplate. In this case, the
ServiceSpecCharacteristicValue is set at
the design stage when the
ServiceTemplate is created, and it cannot
be modified afterwards.
A ServiceSpecCharacteristic present in a
ServiceTemplate is sometimes qualified as
being "invariant", since it cannot be modified
after the creation of the ServiceTemplate (the
term "globally set" can also be used"). A
ServiceSpecCharacteristic which value is
passed over the Activation Interface is
sometimes qualified as being "variant", since
the value must be given for each Service
instance created (the term "individually set"
can also be used).

ServiceSpecification

Changeable as well as invariant attributes,


methods, relationships and constraints which
define a Service. It can be conceptually
thought of as a template that different Service
instances can be instantiated from. Each of
these Service instances will have the same
invariant characteristics. However, the other
characteristics of the instantiated Service will
be specific to each instance.

ServiceSpecificationType

The ServiceSpecificationType class defines a


generic category of ServiceSpecifications.
Each ServiceSpecificationType serves to
group a set of particular ServiceSpecifications that share the same behavior and other
semantics. One result of this is to be able to
more efficiently define a set of related
Services that can be grouped together to form
a higher-level Service. For example, a given
higher-level Service might include VPN and
QoS Services. If these Services are always
used together, then they can be categorized
using a common type.

verifying the presence of the
ServiceSpecCharacteristics and the validity
of the corresponding assigned
ServiceSpecCharacteristicsValues. Each of
the associated Service instances will have the
same invariant characteristics which values
are taken from the ServiceTemplate.
However, when activating a Service, it may
be possible to specify over the Activation
Interface a ServiceCharacteristicsValue
which overrides the corresponding
ServiceSpecCharacteristicValue available in
the associated ServiceTemplate. In this case
the new proposed value applies only to the
Service instance created, and the
ServiceSpecCharacteristicValue in the
ServiceTemplate is not modified. In order not
to descend into sub-classing, the
ServiceTemplate is considered to be generic
such that it serves as a framework for defining
technology or service specific templates.
Other TMForum groups, or service providers,
may use the service template as a foundation
for building or populating servicetemplates.

Subnetwork Connection

A Subnetwork Connection (SNC) represents


the relationship between two of the following
types on end points:
l Physical Termination Point (PTP)
l Connection Termination Point (CTP)
l Group Termination Point (GTP)
l Floating Termination Point (FTP)
An SNC represents a transparent end-to-end
connection or a trail (closed or half-open)
through or within a MultiLayer Subnetwork
according to the roles associated to its end
points. If the SNC represents a connection, its
end points are CTPs or FTPs with the SNC's
layer rate as connectable layer rate. In the case
of GTPs (i.e. a Bundled connection) the SNC
does not have an explicit layer rate. If the SNC
represents a trail, its end points are CTPs,
FTPs or PTPs. An SNC shall be contained in
a MultiLayer Subnetwork.
A Subscriber is an entity (associated with one
or more users) that is engaged in a service
subscription with a service provider. The
subscriber is allowed to subscribe and
unsubscribe services, to register a user or a
list of users authorized to use these services,
and also to set the limits relative to the use
that associated users make of these services.
