Addresses the provisioning and memory administration of services, technologies, and network architectures that have become
established or are emerging within service providers' networks;
Provides new TL1 messages, parameters, and values that support advanced Synchronous Optical Network (SONET) architectures, Wave
Division Multiplexing (WDM), Passive Optical Network (PON), and Ethernet;
Addresses the manageability of such services, technologies, and network architectures;
Includes new data dictionaries for WDM, PON and Ethernet technologies and
Clarifies TL1 message formats and syntax rules.
This document describes Transaction Language One (TL1) message structures and data elements for Network Element (NE) Memory
Administration functions described in GR-472 and GR-2963. GR-199-CORE provides the messages and data dictionary information
required for the Memory Administration functions for transport including Synchronous Optical Network (SONET) and switching including
ISDN and Advanced Intelligent Network (AIN) NEs.
Memory administration in an NE generally refers to operations functions such as adding, deleting, or altering data stored in the NE
database. These operations functions are essential for not only providing services supported by the NE, but also for maintaining the
quality of these services. Traditionally, the input commands that request database changes in the NEs are known as recent change
messages in the switching application environment, and provisioning messages in the transport environment. However, these two types of
messages essentially perform equivalent or similar memory administration functions in the switching and transport environments. Memory
administration also includes system administration functions such as security management and memory backup. This document provides the
messages required for the Provisioning-Driven Memory Administration (PDMA) functions for transport and switching NEs.
