Presentation from Jonathan (continued)
Optical Amplifier (OA) modeling
Using the peer LTP association for amplifiers was suggested. This was further developed.
There was some tentative agreement that the amplifier should be made from elements of a spec that causes augment where the augment can be for either the LTP or FC.
The amplifier and its monitors should be spec building blocks (like LegoTM). The vendor is then able to construct from the building blocks what reflects their realization.
New monitors may emerge that we will want to add to the building block opportunities.
Discussed Termination State.
Suggestion that documentation needs to be improved.
