CSSMWG Colleagues ---
I have uploaded a new version (1.0) of the Requirements for Simple Configuration Profiles and Service Agreements Tech Note to the CWE/CSS/CSS-SM/CWE Private - Beta/Tech Note Development/ Config Profile SvcAgreement Tech Note subdirectory, at URL
The primary improvements in this version over the previous one (0.3) deal with investigating approaches by which the interrelationships within and among the Functional Resource instances, Space Link Service Profiles, and Configuration Profiles can be specified in common way, so that we can create interoperable Configuration Profiles:
- Section 5 looks at several candidate approaches, and makes a recommendation for a particular approach.
- Section 6 adds UML diagrams for two of the Space Link Service Profiles that are likely to be most used - the Forward CLTU space link service profile and the Return Online Real-Time Communication space link service profile. Tables of configuration parameters are provided for each of the functional resource types in these service profiles, containing the draft set of configuration profiles from the current SANA Functional Resource Candidate Registry.
- Section 7 provides example configuration profiles using various combinations of the Forward CLTU space link service profile and the Return Online Real-Time Communication space link service profile to show how they can be used in Service Packages Requests and how they can be re-specified to provide different capabilities.
I had hoped to be able to also include a radiometric (tracking) space link service profile in the configuration profile examples in section 7, but I just ran out of time. I intend to add such a service in a (near) future version of the Tech Note.
The approach that I have proposed for expressing the relationships among FR instances for the purposes of creating configuration profile is, I believe, much leaner and more straightforward than approaches that we've considered in recent years. Having developed the example configuration profiles for section 7, I am cautiously optimistic that we have a way to create the long-sought-after "cookie cutter" configuration profiles with a bare minimum of "computer science-y" artifacts. I look forward to discussing this material with you.
