    2. Photonic OAM
    3. TCA provisioning
  2. Physical impairments (not blocking)
    • OFC is augmenting TAPI Link, others the AbstractStrand.
    • Type of amplifier, fibre attenuation, etc.
  3. Photonic model capability (not blocking)
  4. Lifecycle management of ConnectivityService at every layer, necessary to identify UCs (not blocking)

TAPI RIA 1.2/2.0:

  • Scheduled two additional, official, dedicated TAPI calls:
    • Wed 1:00-3:00pm and Fri 10:30-12:30 CET
    • Calendar files available in the reminder email sent on January 10th.

TAPI weeky call

Preliminary agenda:

  • Continue the discussion on layering recommendations
  • Continue the discussion on relationships between layers
  • Continue the development of Optical Impairment UML model
  • Continue the discussion on physical topology

Layering recommendations

Andrea Mazzini provides an overview of the preliminary agreements reached during TAPI/RIA calls of last week:

  • The introduction of new layer rate qualifier OTS_MEDIA replacing UNSPECIFIED, OTS and OTS_OMS ones.
  • Deprecate OTSi layer rate qualifier:
    • The currently specified OTSi CEP will become an OTSiMC CEP with Termination State = PERMANENTLY_TERMINATED (to be checked).
    • The currently specified OTSiMC CEP will have Termination State = CAN_NEVER_TERMINATE (to be checked).

  • Below an example applicable to "aggregated" scenario, with the MC Connection ending on the Degree Port of the ROADM:

  • Below an example applicable to "disaggregated" scenario, with the MC connection ending on the Add/Drop Port of the ROADM (i.e. MC Connection is the result of MC ConnectivityService provisioning):

  • Ramon Casellas the following case, where MC ends on the transponder, seems not applicable for currently known use cases:

  • Preliminary agrement to avoid OTS_MEDIA / OMS CEP instances specific per C, L etc. bands.
    • Esther Le Rouzic, each vendor has different definition of bands.

Draft of Optical Impairment UML model

Andrea Mazzini 

Andrea Mazzini presents the updated UML diagram of Photonic Profiles.

  • All data structures defined by ietf-optical-impairment-topology.yang have been included in the diagram, either in classes or mentioned in the comments.
  • Left part:

  • Right part:

  • Ramon Casellas notes that e.g. the actual-gain is a parameter which cannot be part of a profile, rather it is a property (state/config) of a given managed amplifier of the network.
    • Andrea Mazzini right, each construct shall find its right place, either in a Profile or in an already defined TAPI topological or connectivity object. Now we have an unique diagram to parse.
  • Clarified that the IETF OMS Link is equivalent to either OMS Connection or MC Link in TAPI.
    • Agreed that IETF oms-element provides a description of the topology between ROADMs (amplifiers and fibers).
  • Andrea Mazzini shows an early draft of a possible use case "get all OMS Connection/MC Link Impairments".
    • It shall be completed by the optical impairment parameters which will be added to topological or connectivity objects:
