 TAPI MEF Discussion 
  • Topology–> Node–>Topology Recursion: This is natural and not a problem. In TAPI we have a <LifecycleAggregate> stereotype that captures the lifecycle dependency between Node and its encompassed Topology even though this relationship is represented by UML aggregation.
  • What is meant by "Model does not work"?
 OTSi Spec model

Karthik, Nigel, Andrea

Attachment: OTSi Termination Model

OTSi NEP/PoolPac

  • Question: Does it represent a single potential OTSiG/OTSiA or a pool of OTSiG/OTSiA on a fiber ?
  • In general TAPI NEP/PoolPac represents server-trail capacity/caqpability, but as client layer information. So the OTSi NEP represents OMS trail capacity/capability, but presented at the OMS client layer (OTSiA).
  • According to the current TAPI proposal slides (see attachement below) it could be both an OTSI port on the TPND/MXPND card as well as the OMS line ports.

The above needs more thought and final decision deferred to next call.
