Abstract:

This Interface Profile Specification defines the Presto Management Interface for the network control and management domain in support of [MEF 6.2] and [MEF 51] Services and is a specialization of relevant classes from the MEF NRM (Network Resource Model). The Presto NRP (Network Resource Provisioning) Interface is for use by a Service Orchestration Functionality (SOF) as described in [MEF 55] and in support of processes for Service Configuration and Activation [MEF 56] at the network resource layer. 

The Presto NRP requests ICM to create connectivity or functionality associated with specific Service Components of an end-to-end Connectivity Service within the domain managed by each ICM. Presto may also allow the ICM to describe Resources and capabilities it can instantiate.
