Voice over Packet: NGN Element Management System (EMS) Generic Requirements
Document Number GR-3070

ABSTRACT: Issue 1 of GR-3070, Voice over Packet: NGN Element Management System (EMS) Generic Requirements, describes the functionality and
interfaces for a Voice over Packet (VoP) Element Management System (EMS). The VoP EMS will operate at the Element Management Layer
(EML) of the Telecommunications Management Network (TMN) architecture. In general, this layer has responsibility for functions such as
control and coordination of VoP Functional Elements (FEs), providing a gateway to VoP FEs for the Network Management Layer (NML) and
higher layers, and maintenance of statistics and history pertaining to the VoP FEs.
More specifically, this document details a set of "generic" functional requirements on a VoP EMS to support the management of VoP
networks and services. GR-3070 provides network management generic requirements that are common across the VoP FEs as well as
requirements for network management interfaces to each of the VoP FEs and the VoP Billing Agent. In addition, this document specifies
network management functional requirements specific to each of the VoP FEs across the Configuration Management, Fault Management,
Performance Management, and Security Management functional areas.
This document is intended to be used as a functional and interface requirements reference in the design and implementation of a VoP
EMS. Additionally, the document can be employed for testing and verification of the EMS functions and interfaces. To demonstrate the
potential use of the requirements provided in this document, GR-3070 also details several example operations scenarios.
