XML Schema Interface for Fault Management (Trouble Administration)
|Publication Date:||1 January 2017|
The tML Framework Document (ITU-T Recommendation M.3030) identifies potential applications for using XML in the interface design specification. Fault Management (Trouble Administration) is one such application. ITU-T Recommendation M.3020 defines a three phase methodology for developing interface specifications related to management information exchanges. The requirements phase has not been formally defined but is derived from former ANSI standard ATIS-0300227.2008 (included here as Annexes A through H) and former ANSI standard ATIS-0300228.2011 (included here as Annex I). The formal analysis phase from M.3020 is not included in this document. This document presents the design phase using XML schemas (tML TA schemas) for Trouble Administration functions and services specified in Annexes A through I. The design phase is a result of analyzing (in the form of UML model) ATIS-0300227/ATIS-03
The approach used in this standard defines XML application protocol data units that are specific to a subset of TA as defined in Annexes A through H and Annex I (ANSI version of ITU-T X.790). The XML messages specified in this standard are defined via an XML schema (tML-TA schema) and there is no coupling to a transport protocol. While mapping to a transport protocol (such as tML Transport Protocol, see Ref ) is required for interoperability, it is outside the scope of this document, and should be addressed by each pair of bonded companies as a joint implementation issue.
Informative Annexes A through H define an information model using GDMO (ITU-T Recommendation X.722) and ASN.1 (ITU-T Recommendation X.680) for the TMN X-interface (ITU-T Recommendation M.3010) to support Fault Management. These clauses are applicable when Common Management Information Service Element (CMISE) is used for conveying inquiry information across an OS-OS interactive interface.
Informative Annex J specifies a functionally equivalent interface using the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA)/Interface Definition Language (IDL), as defined in The Common Object Request Broker Architecture and Specification, Revision 2.2, Object Management Group, Feb 1998.
Since this Committee is no longer aware of CMISE or CORBA based implementations supporting tML framework, these references have been moved to the informative annexes.
The purpose of this document is to provide the XML schemas (tML TA schemas) for trouble administration functions and services specified in Annexes A through I.
