ABSTRACT: This document provides the view of Telcordia on generic requirements for a set of generic messages to convey Configuration Management
(CM) information between switching Network Elements (NEs) and a CM Operations System (OS). The information is intended to support CM
functions in the NEs, and to allow NEs to interface directly with a CM OS.
This GR also presents an overall discussion of Telcordia generic requirements for the Open Systems Interconnection/Common Management
Information Service a Element (OSI/CMISE) information model of system management interface between OS's and switching NEs. The system
management interface uses all seven layers of the OSI Reference Model. The information and associated service set are used by the
application layer as the basis for operations communication. The managed objects explicitly presented in this issue are limited to the
Common Channel Signaling fragment of the information model. Other fragments recommended by standards are referenced.
GR-981 replaced TA-NWT-000981 and TA-NWT-000981-SUP01.
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.
