Software Inventory for Network Element Software Management

Document Number GR-2911
Issue Number 01
Issue Date Jun 1995

    ABSTRACT: Presently, the software generic of a Network Element (NE) is updated by dispatching a technician to the site of the NE to provide the necessary manual initiation and control. This manual procedure is undesirable as technician dispatch is labor intensive and human intervention is error prone. The present mode of operation is not only expensive but is also time consuming, thereby increasing the cost of installing, and prolonging the time-to-value of new software generics. The goal is to streamline the software update process by reducing or eliminating technician dispatch as well as on-site human intervention. Several documents are being published to accomplish this goal.

    This Generic Requirements (GR) document presents the view of Telcordia on a functional description of, and generic criteria for, software inventory that plays a vital role in tracking software generics received from suppliers and orchestrating software generics downloaded to NEs.

    When using GR-2911, you may need to refer to GR-472. You may also want to refer to SR-2676.
