RIA Review

Ramon Casellas provides an overview of the state of RIA 2.0 (draft specification constantly updated in TAPI RIA, directory TAPI 2.0)

  • In general, the review process has found gaps, inconsistencies and opportunities on a number of subjects
  • Differently from the review of RIA 1.1, now the model is not frozen, hence we are tuning it when required by the development of Use Cases
  • The review process is taking more time than expected because:
    • There are several changes between TAPI 2.1.3 and TAPI 2.4, which made necessary to revisit everything, e.g.
      • OTS/OMS layering reorganization
      • OTSi layer deprecated and collapsed into OTSiMC
      • OTSiA and MCA deprecated
      • Explicit OTU layer
    • There are big new features
      • OAM
      • Optical Impairments
    • All the above also suggested to produce a new set of Connectivity and OAM scenarios
      • Including UNI/ENNI clarifications and asymmetric scenarios

Dominique Verchere asks about Path Computation state

  • Ramon Casellas the currently available model is basic, needs a meaningful development.
