Meeting Notes Discussion

Discussion Notes from  

All Team members
  1. MODELING - Maybe first focus on models classes that A&AI might need. How do those elements get populated & modified. RTCfg will also need details & the architectural approach how they would approach extensibility; representing in swagger API or flexible schema approach.
  2. A&AI - The A&AI will be stopping at level of PNF (CU/DU), the cells underneath associated w/ a DU you can't find in A&AI. That would be stored in RTCfg DB the index would match with the PNF.
  3. NETWORK SLICING - (Swami) building up, intro some classes. in R7 should we introduce all the classes? Q? (Michela) Where were the classes introduced? For R6 modeling the slice as a service using the only the existing constructors & current platform info-model.
  4. ORAN MODELING - The ORAN alignment, w/ their yang info-models. ORAN-ONAP alignment. Contact ORAN SMEs.
  5. RunTime Config DB - Q? (Joanne) The config DB would be focused on SON U/C importing ORAN yang model to be used in the SON/PCI & associated attributes in R6. (Swami) No. The yang models are not officially available from ORAN. In OOF/SON will still use the old yang models. There is work in converting yang to the schema. ORAN yang model itseill be in R7. Alignment taking ORAN alignment; earlier CMNotify notification over Netconf I/F because ORAN decided it will be a VES event, that VES have a draft specification basedon that will generate a VES notification.
  6. RunTime config DB Schema & Extensibility - Q (Andy)? How does RunTime Config DB deal w/ Extensiblity - the YANG model. Schema in R6 is hard-coded; iin the long term the info from vendor provided PNF package could guide the RTCffDB schema (R7). Q (Joanne)? Relation between 5G info model . Attach the 5G Specific aspects for 5G elements (xNFs). Runtime pc the yang model info that would be represented in A&AI. other info only be in RTCfgDB. MODEL the DOMAIN. Config stuff as a "blob" need to parse. A view of what the info model is. Anything dynamic, changeable, or discovering (would not be in A&AI).
  7. OOF/SON PCI - The Parameters already used for the OOF/SON PCI U/C e.g. NetworkID, CellID, PCIValue, nbrList, ... are these in 3GPP TS28.541 (mapping?). Key ideas - OOF/SON/PCI cares about Cells. Model Cells ... how should they be modeled? is that something that should be evolved in the platform model. how Will that evolve. Maybe start w/ SON as a reference or starting point. The requirements are lmited what info we are looking for in Cell.
  8. DOMAIN - RAN (Wireless). the modeling stuff that is introduced will not preclude the ability to support other domains, such routers. EXTENSIBILITY.
  9. MODELING S/C - NEXT STEPS: ... present an abbreviated presentation to Modeling S/C, what would be reused or re-imported from the 3GPP model and how to attach/hang them to base classes. 3GPP has functions functions separated out and attached to the element. ASK who would like to help create the papyrus model as input.
  10. A&AI - NEXT STEPS I've made presentation at the A&AI Team (Weds 9AM EDT USA), they will also be hosting future discussions on parameters flagged as "A&AI" in the spreadsheet.
  11. NOTES - Q (Zu Q.) Add a column for "Notes" justifying if something will be in A&AI.



Controller to NF Association

See Slides Nov 6, 2018. Development of Controller to NF assignment association S/W.

CDS, VF-C, APP-C, SDN-R, SDN-C; will the CCSDK "merging" of controllers happen in R6?


Use Case


Data Persistency, RunTime DB

RunTime Config DB is now a R6 use case :

USE CASE REALIZATION MEETING (Notes 2019-01-30) U/C Cross-Interaction, Persistency


Jan 22 - CMNotify; SA5 3GPP Meeting. CMNotify domain. VES Event spec 7.1.1. Alok Gupta has not updated the VES event. On a leave of absence (Hip surgery). CMNotify is going to be done by Nokia. Sync with Sandeep Shah



Controller LCM API Evolution

Goals (Architecture Evolution)
  • Target is common LCM API in CCSDK usable by different controller personas to simplify for both clients and controller implementations
  • Support PNFs for applicable LCM operations in a consistent way
  • Enable use of CDS blueprint processor to customize behavior of LCM operations in the 'self-service' category
    • In ONAP R4, CDS can be used for pre/post-instantiation configuration. Generic and model-driven design should allow CDS usage to be extended for additional operations and use cases.
  • Evolution steps that preserve backwards compatibility for clients

Present at the Arch S/C Apr 9 (Tue) second presentation.

Use Cases


RAN (ORAN-3GPP) Standards Harmonization with ONAP

  • Orchestration at the Edge.
  • A1/O1/E2 communications. Edge to ENBs, Telemetry.
  • E2 will not have this info. O1 is I/F for PM counts. Not a management I/F.
  • WG3 (ORAN) is defining this.
  • ONAP w/ O1. Changes w/ O1 interface.
  • How to satisfy A1/O1 and in what time-frame.
  • U/C ORAN - ONAP harmonization. 3GPP ORAN ONAP.
  • Starting a new U/C in 5G. Marge, Vimal, Fred Feisullin
  • Edge inventory & topology. Transport BH consideration w/ real-time near-RT aspects
  • Akraino. MEC. Edge automation (Ramki).
