                IP Connectivity Provisioning Profile (CPP)

Abstract

   This document describes the Connectivity Provisioning Profile (CPP)    and proposes a CPP template to capture IP/MPLS connectivity    requirements to be met within a service delivery context (e.g., Voice    over IP or IP TV).  The CPP defines the set of IP transfer parameters    to be supported by the underlying transport network together with a    reachability scope and bandwidth/capacity needs.  Appropriate    performance metrics, such as one-way delay or one-way delay    variation, are used to characterize an IP transfer service.  Both    global and restricted reachability scopes can be captured in the CPP.

   Such a generic CPP template is meant to (1) facilitate the automation    of the service negotiation and activation procedures, thus    accelerating service provisioning, (2) set (traffic) objectives of    Traffic Engineering functions and service management functions, and    (3) improve service and network management systems with 'decision-    making' capabilities based upon negotiated/offered CPPs.
