Outline colors reflect backward compatibility, dotted ones are planned items

Fill colors: red = do not use, green = candidate for production

Note that 2.1.4 delivery is still under discussion, no final agreement reached yet.

    • See 2.4.0-RC1, 2.4.0
      • Delivery includes TR-547, TR-548, normalized alarms and notification/streaming scenarios
    • Not backward compatible with Version 2.1.3
    • Candidate for adoption
    • New Use Cases
      • OAM Provisioning
      • Optical Impairments (CCAMP/GNPy)
        • Including introduction of profiles/templates.
      • Physical Route
        • based on Access Ports and/or connector/pin statements
    • Consolidate/Adapt existing Use Cases to model 2.4
      • OTU layer management (as opposed to OTSi)
      • OTS_MEDIA and OMS layer qualifiers
      • Detected Condition (aligning streaming and notification approaches)
      • Clarified the navigation across layers
      • Clarification and improvement of asymmetric scenarios
      • Clarification on Notifications considering the different object relationships
      • Link between OTSi and MC/OTSiMC (transponder line ports - ROADM add/drop ports)
        • Solution is based on deprecation of OTSi qualifier and adoption of OTSiMC qualifier on both ROADM and transponder
      • Addition of Strand joint
        • Provides a more fine grained opportunity to specific fiber impairments
    • UNI and ENNI interfaces modelling
      • Options specified
    • 3R Scenarios (not fully covered at this stage)
      • In relationship with Asymmetric Service model
      • In relationship to Resiliency
      • See IETF related works
    • Begin to remove all RPCs - leaving the specification of required operations to RIA (through Restconf API spec).
    • Update the Alarm dictionary and formalize it in the model
    • Updates to streaming model
      • Improvements to the specification of stream type parameters
      • optional (preferred) use of common alarm definition
      • softening of attribute use to Conditional with clear condition statements
    • Several improvements to the equipment model
      • Geolocation moved from Amplification to Equipment
    • Profiles YANG had an issue with the augmentation with mandatory properties. Fixed in 2.4.0 using presence statement.

  • 2.4.1-RC1 & RIA 2.1 - Delivered March 2023
    • Bug fixing
      • Sanitized all default values
      • Reviewed the read/write access of all attributes
      • Made optional the selected CEP and selected Route of the Switch object
      • Made optional most attributes of the ResilienceConstraint object
      • Deprecated the isLockout attribute of ResilienceConstraint object
    • Enhancements
      • Added CommonExplicit and CommonOrganizationalExplicit to OtsiConfigPac for the provisioning of all transceiver parameters for the case where a predefined Profile to be referenced is not available.
      • Geolocation moved from Amplification to Equipment (check if 2.4.0 already)
        • post meeting note: yes it was already done in 2.4.0.
      • Introduction of Profile Type
      • Experimental (not yet covered by RIA) Photonic OAM definitions
      • Experimental (not yet covered by RIA) Switch Operation commands
      • Experimental (not yet covered by RIA) Active Problem List
    • Quality improvements
      • Graphic restructuring and alignment to grid of all diagrams
    • See also HighLevelDiff_Tapi2.1.3To2.4.1.pdf

  • > 2.4.1 
    • TR-547 RIA and other documents are under ongoing development: ONF TAPI RIA
    • Slide set which will be included in the RIA: otcc2022.AM.001_TAPI_RIASlides.pptx
    • DSR over OTSi (skip OTN) 
    • Multiband management extensions
    • OTSiG on multiple line ports
    • Replace all ENUM with IDENTITY, to allow the correct distribution of identities across the proper modules, to maintain the modularity.
    • Quality, e.g. add descriptions to UML - Technology specific modules.
    • Consider introduction of Administrative State for physical context objects.
      • Consider also more general subject of state propagation behavior.
    • Further development of Optical Impairments UCs - which lead to model changes
    • Further development of Connectivity UCs including 3R - which lead to model changes
    • Development of Path Computation UCs - which lead to model changes
      • Explore reuse of Connectivity model
      • Explore two distinct use cases:
        • Planning, i.e. create a quasi static set of paths which can used to guide future connectivity services
        • Connectivity Route Selection, i.e. at connectivity service creation, provide a set of alternative paths from which to select the preferred one
      • Consider potential improvements to diversity-policy of connectivity-service. The current enumeration does no appear to allow necessary flexibility/coverage
