Foreword

This European Standard (Telecommunications series) has been produced by ETSI Technical Committee Transmission

and Multiplexing (TM).

The present document is one of a family of documents that has been produced in order to provide inter-vendor and

inter-operator compatibility of Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) equipment.

The present document is part 1-2 of a multi-part EN covering the generic requirements of transport functionality of

equipment, as identified below:
Part 1-1: "Generic processes and performance".

Part 1-2: "General information about Implementation Conformance Statement (ICS) proforma".

Part 2-1: "Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) and Plesiochronous Digital Hierarchy (PDH) physical section

layer functions".

Part 2-2: "Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) and Plesiochronous Digital Hierarchy (PDH) physical section

layer functions; Implementation Conformance Statement (ICS) proforma specification".

Part 3-1: "Synchronous Transport Module-N (STM-N) regenerator and multiplex section layer functions".

Part 3-2: "Synchronous Transport Module-N (STM-N) regenerator and multiplex section layer functions;

Implementaion Conformance Statement (ICS) proforma specification".
Part 4-1: "Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) path layer functions".

Part 4-2: "Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) path layer functions; Implementation Conformance Statement

(ICS) proforma specification".
Part 5-1: "Plesiochronous Digital Hierarchy (PDH) path layer functions".

Part 5-2: "Plesiochronous Digital Hierarchy (PDH) path layer functions; Implementation Conformance Statement

(ICS) proforma specification".

Part 6-2: "Synchronization layer functions; Implementation Conformance Statement (ICS) proforma specification".

Part 7-1: "Auxiliary layer functions".

Part 7-2: "Auxiliary layer functions; Implementation Conformance Statement (ICS) proforma specification".

Parts 2 to 7 specify the layers and their atomic functions.

NOTE 1: The present document does not currently address configuration management.

NOTE 2: The SDH radio equipment functional blocks are addressed by ETSI WG TM4.

Various of the above parts have previously been published as parts of ETS 300 417.

They have been converted into parts of EN 300 417 without technical changes, but some editorial changes have been

necessary (e.g. references). In particular:

- Parts 2-1, 2-2 and 3-2 have been modified to take account of editorial errors present in edition 1.

- Part 1-1 has had its title change of to align with other parts published at a later date.

Also note that in the meantime parts 8-1 and 8-2 together will all parts x-3 (Abstract Test Suites) have been stopped.

This version of the present document has been published because the previous version had incorrect dates in the

transposition table.

Introduction

To evaluate conformance of a particular implementation, it is necessary to have a statement of which capabilities and

options have been implemented for a given profile. Such a statement is called an Implementation Conformance

Statement (ICS).

A client of a test laboratory who requests a conformance / approval test should provide the test laboratory with a

completed ICS proforma for each layer to be tested and a detailed system description of the implementation.

The ICS proforma is not another complete description of the related specification, but rather a compact form of its static

conformance requirements, to be used by the test laboratory to identify which test should be performed on a given

implementation. Not every feature of a profile specification is contained in the related ICS proforma. For particular

cases requiring specific information, the ICS can refer to the appropriate clause of the related specification by means of

references, notes and or comments.

The ICS proforma captures the implementation flexibility allowed by the related specification and details which options

are left to the implementor, and which are conditionally dependent on other options taken by the implementor.

1 Scope

The present document provides general information about the Implementation Conformance Statement (ICS) proforma

structure and contents, as well as guidance for filling-in the document. The ICS proforma for a Synchronous Digital

Hierarchy (SDH) Network Element (NE) are defined in compliance with the relevant requirements, and in accordance

with the relevant guidance, given in ISO/IEC 9646-7 [4], in ETS 300 406 [1] and in EG 201 058 (see bibliography).

The ICS proforma is a normative part of the reference specification.

The supplier of an implementation which is claimed to conform to EN 300 417-1-1 [2] is required to complete a copy of

these ICS proforma, namely the present document, and is further required to provide all information necessary to

identify both the implementation (e.g. specify it by means of a detailed system description) and the supplier.

The client of the test laboratory might be identified by means of the System Conformance Statement (SCS) and a client

checklist. Those proforma are included in annex B of the present document. The use of SCS proforma and client

checklist is not mandatory, any suitable means of providing such information is acceptable.

According to ETS 300 406 [1] the ICS proforma has two main objectives:

- within the context of conformance testing, to be the reference document for the conformance assessment process

related to the Implementation Under Test (IUT);

- outside the context of conformance testing, to provide an overview of the implementation.

Concerning the conformance assessment process, the ICS proforma is used:
- as the description of the IUT for the static conformance review;

- as an element of description of the IUT capabilities for the test case deselection;

- as an element of description of the IUT for the test suite parameterization;
- as a reference document for the analysis of the results;
- for inclusion with the final test report.
Outside the conformance testing context, the ICS proforma is or may be used:

- to provide an overview of the capability supported by the implementation (see note);

- to statically check the interworking capacities of two implementations;
- as a standard checklist of the base specification conformance requirements.

When requesting conformance / approval testing of an SDH layer implementation, the supplier should always fill all the

ICS proforma relevant for that layer. In the case where more than one instance of the same layer appears in the detailed

system description, the client of a test laboratory should clearly identify any differences existing between these instances

(if any).

NOTE: Each capability of the ICS associated implementation is described as a conformance statement which is

the result of the answer, by the supplier, to the dedicated ICS item.
