This Generic Requirements (GR) document provides the view of Telcordia on generic criteria for interfaces to support test access
management using Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) management tools. These interfaces support functions applicable to network systems
that support remote test access, such as Test System Controller/Remote Test Unit (TSC/RTU) and standalone Access Systems (AS).
This document focuses on metallic and digital test access that supports a variety of service types. The document also provides the
foundation test access model for other technologies and architectures, e.g., Integrated Digital Loop Carrier (IDLC), Fiber In The Loop
(FITL), and Basic Rate Interface (BRI) Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN).
Revision 1 incorporates the ability to access SONET.
This GR also includes one or more Issue List Reports (ILRs) that details open or closed technical issues in the main document. The
ILR(s) are automatically sent free of charge to the GR document purchaser.
