Foreword

This Interim European Telecommunication Standard (I-ETS) has been produced by the Network Aspects

(NA) Technical Committee of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).

An ETSI standard may be given I-ETS status either because it is regarded as a provisional solution ahead

of a more advanced standard, or because it is immature and requires a "trial period". The life of an I-ETS

is limited to three years after which it can be converted into an ETS, have it's life extended for a further

two years, be replaced by a new version, or be withdrawn.
Proposed announcement date
Date of adoption of this I-ETS: 16 February 1996
Date of latest announcement of this I-ETS (doa): 31 May 1996
Introduction

From an availability and retainability point of view, a portion of a Broadband Integrated Services Digital

Network (B-ISDN) semi-permanent connection should have the following properties:
- unavailability

The unavailability of a B-ISDN semi-permanent connection portion is the fraction of time during

which it cannot accommodate a transaction (i.e. it is in a down state). This down state is to be

characterized by a set of decision parameters, specific to the information transfer phase, and their

associated outage criteria.

The fraction of time during which it is in a down state should be as low as possible;

- retainability

The retainability performance of B-ISDN semi-permanent connection portions is defined in this

I-ETS as the probability that a transaction using a B-ISDN semi-permanent connection portion once

obtained (i.e. is available), will neither be interrupted nor prematurely released (i.e. does not

become unavailable) for a given duration. In this I-ETS the retainability performance is specified in

terms of outage intensity.

Once a transaction is started on a B-ISDN semi-permanent connection, it should have a low

probability of being either interrupted (because of insufficient data transfer performance) or

prematurely released (due to the failure of some network component) before the requested end of

the transaction.

1 Scope

This Interim European Telecommunication Standard (I-ETS) specifies availability and retainability

parameters for Broadband Integrated Services Digital Network (B-ISDN) semi-permanent connections

(VPCs and VCCs)

An international B-ISDN semi-permanent connection is partitioned into two national portions and an

international portion. The international portion is further partitioned into connection portions delimited by

International Measurement Points (MPIs) as defined in prI-ETS 300 464 [1].

A futur version of this I-ETS will specify objectives for the availability and retainability performance of each

of these portions, and measurement methods will be defined.
2 Normative references

This I-ETS incorporates by dated and undated reference, provisions from other publications. These

normative references are cited at the appropriate places in the text and the publications are listed

hereafter. For dated references, subsequent amendments to or revisions of any of these publications

apply to this I-ETS only when incorporated in it by amendment or revision. For undated references the

latest edition of the publication referred to applies.
[1] I-ETS 300 464: "Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM); Broadband Integrated
Services Digital Network (B-ISDN); ATM layer cell transfer performance for
B-ISDN connection types".
[2] ITU-T Recommendation I.610 (1994): "B-ISDN operation and maintenance
principles and functions".
[3] ITU-T Recommendation E.800 (1994):."Terms and definitions related to quality
of service and network performance including dependability".
3 Symbols and abbreviations
For the purposes of this I-ETS, the following abbreviations apply:
AIS Alarm Indication Signal
ATM Asynchronous Transfer Mode
FS Frontier Station
ISC International Switching Center
MPI International Measurement Point
MTBO Mean Time Between Outages
MTTR Mean Time To Restore
OAM Operation Administration and Maintenance
SECB Severely Errored Cell Block
SES Severely Errored Second
ATM
4 Definition of parameters

The decision parameters which characterize the down state of a B-ISDN semi-permanent connection

portion are based on a subset of the performance parameters defined in prI-ETS 300 464 [1].

NOTE: It is likely that CLR and SECBR will be the parameters that form this subset.

The observation process of these decision parameters will include the specification of time during which

they are estimated. It is necessary to base the outage criteria for the unavailable state on successive

observations of decision parameters.

In order to classify available and unavailable states, entry/exit criteria are defined.
