3Model DiscussionThorsten Heinze

Only one point was discussed among the three in the agenda:

1) TR-532 / Development towards Interface Definition

Background:

•During past PoC and Trial executions, we realized that a bare information model definition does not suffice for an unambiguous management interface behavior.
•The most prominent example were different reactions on configuration requests that were only partly executable.

 

Proposal:

•In this first step, I would like to propose to change the name of TR-532 from “Microwave Information Model” to “Microwave Management Interface Definition”.
•Further on, content of the document shall be developed from a management protocol agnostic information model definition towards a definition of a management interface qualified for vendor agnostic device management.

 

Main reasons:

•An ambiguous interface does not create real value.
--> DISCUSSION:
  • it has been proposed to eventually split the content in different 'parts' in order to avoid to have big document difficult to manage
  • With this proposal there will be TR-532 Part 1 (Data model) + TR-532 Part 2 (Yang)
  • It has been underlined anyway that the version for the two parts shll remain aligned
  • It has been discussed also about the validator: validator is tool that allows to pre-check the model before implementing in real product in order to check correctness (syntax in particular): it a similar (but modern) approach respect to PICS introduced for otehr standard bodies

--> DECISION:

  • with the mentioned possible modification (part split) the proposal has been agreed
