NSI Architecture Document Status and Work to be done: A view from a chair Inder Monga ESNet
Goal of the Architecture Doc. Promote uniform understanding of the motivations behind the NSI interface within OGF and beyond OGF (within other standard bodies) Requirements that drive formation of consistent protocols/service interface specifications.
NSI Architecture Specification Four high-level sections – Context and Motivation Why NSI? How does it fit in with the rest of the well-established network concepts? – Terminology and Concepts New language to discuss architecture and interactions – Architecture – Lots of stuff here NSA Block Diagram and interactions Service interactions with other network services Requirements on provisionable services Security, Fault tolerance, Multi-domain.. – Implementation and Deployment Use Cases Case studies on possible deployments of NSI interface and NSA. Application examples using NSI
Needs description of Service plane and how it fits in with current understanding of Mangement, Control and Data/Transport Plane Table of Contents (existing doc) CONTEXT AND MOTIVATION 2.1B ACKGROUND 2.2I NTRODUCING THE S ERVICE P LANE 2.2.1OGF W ORKING G ROUPS AND DOCUMENTS 2.2.2O THER S TANDARDS G ROUPS
Service Plane The ServicePlane refers to the set of systems and processes that are geared towards providing services to users and maintaining state on those services. The Service plane will generally rely on the functions of the ControlPlane and/or ManagementPlane to effect actual changes on the DataPlane. In addition, the ServicePlane will typically maintain databases on current and future service instantiations and coordinate associated workflow processes.

Proposed Timeline Architecture Doc By OGF28 – final draft document, ready to go to GFD editors. No open discussion items – GHPN hosts any researchy architecture discussions like best way to implement a agent path-finding service Final first draft by end December 2009?
