5 Extending the Metro Ethernet Technology Pack

You can extend the Metro Ethernet Technology Pack to meet the business needs of your organization. This chapter describes the content included in the technology pack to facilitate extension.

See UIM Concepts, UIM Developer's Guide, and the Oracle Communications Design Studio online Help for general information about how you extend specifications, characteristics, and rulesets.

Important:

To ensure that your extensions are upgradeable and supportable, you must follow the guidelines and policies described in UIM Concepts.

Extending Validation and Auto-Assignment Capabilities

The Metro Ethernet Technology Pack includes a number of stub rulesets that you can use to introduce new validation and auto-assignment capabilities.

Stub rulesets are blank by default. You can develop your own rulesets in separate cartridges and give them the same name as the stub. After you deploy the technology pack into Oracle Communications Unified Inventory Management (UIM), you deploy the cartridges with your custom rulesets, which replace the stub versions. See UIM Concepts and UIM Developer's Guide for more information.

These are the stub rulesets included in the technology pack:

Extending Configuration Specifications with Stub Configuration Items

Stub configuration items have no content associated with them by default. You use them to add characteristics or specification options to configuration. You can associate characteristics or specification options to these stubs from separate cartridge, so you do not need to unseal a technology pack cartridge to extend it. See UIM Concepts and the Design Studio online Help for more information.

Extending the Ethernet Termination Model

The Ethernet Termination configuration specification includes two stub configuration items. Table 5-1 lists and describes these configuration items.

Table 5-1 Stub Configuration Items for the Ethernet Termination Model

Stub Item Use

Ingress-Performance

Egress Performance

Used to support Quality of Service (QoS) standards

For example, you can include characteristics such as the Committed Info Rate, Burst Size, or Excess Information Rate.


Extending the Ethernet Service Configurations

The VLANBased Service and PortBased Service configuration specifications for the Metro Ethernet service include four stub configuration items associated with the EVC-Profile configuration item. Table 5-2 lists and describes these configuration items.

Table 5-2 Stub Configuration Items for Ethernet Service Configurations

Stub Item Use

Ingress-Performance

Egress Performance

Used to support Quality of Service (QoS) standards

For example, you could include characteristics such as the Committed Info Rate, Burst Size, or Excess Information Rate.

Additional Characteristics

Used to associate additional characteristics if necessary to the EVC profile

EVC-Composition

Used to specify how the EVC is implemented

For example, you could include a specification option for a Layer 2 service
