                        with IEEE 802.1p bit in Ethernet header to one of five traffic
                        treatment classes of RPR. Further the IEEE 802.1p bit marking shall
                        be preserve in RPR enabled part of network so that the traffic, leaving
                        the RPR enabled part of network, contains the same IEEE 802.1p bit
                        value. It shall be possible to pre-configure such mapping from NMS

      3.4.1   Access to all services shall be based on client less model. Initially users shall be
              assigned an IP address by which they can log on to the BSNL portal only. The
              same shall also happen as soon as user tries to browse any site without portal
              authentication. No service shall be allowed at this stage. User shall have to
              provide his/her username and password. DHCP option 60/77 along with 82 shall

              that device.
      3.4.2   When the user tries to access a service subsequent to the step above, from the
              same device and wants to continue with his/her default service, he shall be
              allowed to do so in the same session. Other wise if they select a new service
              through portal, his/her default service for that device shall get changed and they
              shall be asked to re-login.
      3.4.3   In case users re-login, they shall be asked to enter his user name and password.

              service and portal access.
      3.4.4   The IP address assignment shall be based upon his service selection. It shall be
              possible to use private IP address for services like content delivery services, etc.
      3.4.5   In case the residential user wants to be part of private VPN, he/ she shall use
              PPPoE / IPSec based dial VPN access. In case the business user wants to access
              service provided to residential user, they shall configure his CPE to access these
              services through second PVC. OLT shall treat the traffic of this PVC in same way
              as traffic from residential user.
      3.4.6   ONT of business user shall have at least four Ethernet ports, each mapped to
              different PVCs. One PVC shall be used for VPN services and others for other

                   PPPoE / IPSec session shall either be terminated by BNG / PE of NIB-II. Same
                   Services shall be extended for the users join through Narrow band RAS or
                   Internet. This service will be provided by two methods:
                   3.4.13.1        User initiates PPPoE session with BNG. The users shall be
                           identified as part of any particular VPN based upon their domain
                           information i.e. user abc@xyz belong to a VPN related to xyz domain
                           name. BNG shall act as L2TP access concentrator (LAC) for this service
                           and initiate L2TP session with L2TP Network Server (LNS). The existing
                           BRAS deployed in NIB-II will be used as LNS. The LNS authenticates
                           the User/Tunnel with Radius and terminate the tunnel in respective VRF.
                           IP address for the user will be assigned by LNS (from local pool or
                           Radius).
                   3.4.13.2        This service shall also be provided by use of IPSec tunnels over
                           internet (It shall be possible to block internet access and make VPN only
                           account for such users, if required). In such scenario, user shall connect to
                           internet and use IPSec client to login into the VPN by connecting to IPSec
                           module of PE of NIB-II. PE of NIB-II, through Radius server validates
                           the user and authorizes to join him with respective VPN VRF. PE router
                           of NIB-II shall terminate the IPSec session into corresponding VPN.
                           There will be two IP for the PC. One Public IP assigned by first BNG and
                           VPN IP assigned by IPSec PE from local pool or Radius.
            3.4.14 Voice and video telephony over IP: MPLS PE Routes of NIB-II shall put the
                   traffic belonging to these services into VPN for VoIP. All call setup messages
                   shall be routed to softswitch of BSNL first. The procurement of the soft switch
                   and media gateways are not in the scope of the current tender.
            3.4.15 IPTV: Multicast traffic of IPTV shall be carried with security and required QoS
                   into multicast VPNs/ multicast tunnels in the MPLS enabled part of solution,
                   thereafter the same shall be carried by multicast VLANs. Traffic handoff shall be
                   as shown in figure 1. The multicast VLAN shall be used for carrying the traffic to
                   the last aggregation point (Line card of OLT) without any adverse effect on QoS.
            3.4.16 Bandwidth on Demand: It shall be possible for an Internet or VPN user to
                   change access speed by logging on to the portal without closing the existing
                   session. Solution shall provide the different rate of charging mechanism for the
                   same.

5.   Telecom Management Network Architecture: The Telecom Management Network
     Architecture for Broadband Next Generation Play shall be based on the five Layer TMN Model
     of the ITU(T). The TMN hierarchy is pyramidal from top to bottom consisting of Business
     Management Layer (BML), Service Management Layer (SML), Network Management Layer
     (NML), Element Management Layer (EML) and the Network Element Layer (NEL). In
     Broadband Next Generation Play, bottom two Layers are taken into account while the top
     three Layers are part of NIB-II and Broadband Multiplay Project. The graphical diagram
     depicting the Framework and interconnectivity of various components in the TMN Layers is
     given in Figure 6A and 6B. The bidder shall commit to provide full support to all activities that
     relate to successful implementation of the TMN model and providing necessary interface
     information. The functions of bottom three layers are as follows.
     5.1    Network Element Layer (NEL): The different Network Elements involved in the
            Broadband Next Generation Play Network are GPON OLT & ONT, LAN Switches.
     5.2    Element Management Layer (EML): For each group of Network Element there will be
            Element Management System (EMS). Thus there will be separate EMS for each
            Broadband Component of Broadband Next Generation Play as indicated above. The role
            of EMS is to control and manage all aspects of the domain such as Fault, Configuration,
            Accounting, Performance and Security (FCAPS) as defined by ITU-T and to ensure
            maximum usage of the devices resources. The EMS communicates with NE on either
            vendor proprietary interface or standard interface like SNMP, CMISE, TL1. These
            EMSs inturn communicate via open standard, northbound interface (SNMP/Java API/
            CORBA API/XML API) to NMS/PMS of NIB-II, which is in Network Management
            Layer (NML). The EMS performs the following functions:
            5.2.1   Service Delivery: It consist of
                    5.2.1.1 Inventory Management Support: It involves maintaining a record of all
                            the NE resources that are installed in the sub network to support the
                            provisioning of services; it includes collection of locations, quantities of
                            equipment, model numbers, serial numbers, versions, installation dates
                            etc. To ensure ongoing operational integrity, the EMS periodically
                            resynchronizes its database with the NE using the auto discovery
                            mechanism. It also auto discovers equipment-provisioning parameters that
                            are stored in the EMS database for use in other service-provisioning,
                            service-assurance operations.
                                                                                                     53
              5.2.1.2 Configuration Management Support: It involves complete control of sub
                      network resources, topologies, and redundancies and includes the
                      installation and turn-up of new equipment resources; it may include the
                      assignment of resources to trunk routes or service areas, the control of
                      equipment, and network protection switching.
              5.2.1.3 Provisioning Support: involves the creation of specific connections or the
                      enabling of specific sub network features and the assignment of these to a
                      specific subscriber for an extended period; the connections and features
                      may take into account or be determined by a QoS level that is guaranteed
                      to the subscriber.
              5.2.1.4 Service Usage Support: involves the measurement of the usage of the sub
                      network resources by the various subscribers; this is the basis for billing.
      5.2.2   Service Assurance: It consist of
              5.2.2.1 Fault Management Support: involves the monitoring of the network
                      resources to detect malfunction, preempt failures, and detect faults. After
                      faults are discovered, the operator must troubleshoot, repair, and restore
                      the network as quickly as possible. Fault management ensures that service
                      remains available.
              5.2.2.2 Performance Data Collection Support: involves the periodic collection of
                      quality metrics that characterize the performance of the network resources
                      over service intervals. It also facilitates the visualization of trends that can
                      indicate periodic or gradual degradation of physical resources.
              5.2.2.3 Resource utilization data Collection Support: involves the collection of
                      data on the level of utilization of network resources assigned to
                      subscribers. This data can be used to determine whether the service
                      product is appropriately matched to the subscribers' usage characteristics.
                      It can also be used to forecast demand and suggest service upgrades
                      before QoS suffers.
              5.2.2.4 QoS Assurance Support: involves ensuring that the quality metrics
                      characterizing network performance remain within the agreed limits. It
                      requires proactive monitoring of the network fault, performance, and
                      utilization parameters to preempt any degradation in service quality
5.3   Network Management Layer (NML): The NML basically has three primary functions.
      5.3.1   Integrated Fault Management and Root-Cause analysis of multivendor and
              multitechnology networks. This function is taken care by NMS of NIB-II which
              is HP OpenView.
      5.3.2   Integrated, single screen, end-to-end service provisioning of multivendor and
              multitechnology networks. This function is to be taken care by the Provisioning
              Management System. The conceptual view of the same is shown in Figure 5A
              and 5B.
      5.3.3   Integration Layer between the eML and the SML; This role is to bring together
              information from the EMSs that support it, and then integrate, correlate and
              summarize that information, so as to pass on relevant information to Service
              Management SystEMS (SMSs) in the SML; in the reverse direction, the NML
              receives information from the SML, processes it and passes on relevant
              commands and data to the appropriate EMS; the EMS then sends specific
              command to the NE. The EMS shall support SNMP/ Java API/ CORBA API /

                                                                                                   54
              XML for communicating with NMS so that complete management of the
              network is efficient.
