Abstract:

This document specifies the Service Attributes that need to be agreed between a Service Provider and a Subscriber for IP Services, including IP VPNs, cloud access and Internet access. It further specifies the Service Attributes that need to be agreed between a Service Provider and an Operator when part of an end-to-end IP Service needs to be implemented by a partner Operator. Some key concepts are introduced, including IP UNIs, IP ENNIs, IP Virtual Connections, IP Virtual Connection End Points, IP UNI Access Links and IP ENNI Links. Specific Service Attributes and corresponding behavioral requirements are defined for each of these entities. These include support for assured services, e.g. multiple Classes of Service, performance objectives specified in a Service Level Specification, and Bandwidth Profiles.
