The model illustrates key relationships across all technology and standards development activities. Specifically, it demonstrates the relationships of service designs and data elements; leverages existing architectures while evolving the model based on new ATIS technology programs; creates common definitions, lexicons and taxonomies; illustrates synergies; and improves the technology and standards development lifecycle. ATIS views the reference model as dynamic and a “living effort.” It will evolve through periodic updates driven by technology changes and members’ business needs.
The first iteration is a “current view” model, depicting network functionality as it exists today. It was developed by architects from Alcatel-Lucent, AT&T, GENBAND, Ericsson, Harris, Neustar and Verizon, and it has already been used by the Cybersecurity Focus Group to align trust zones with other ATIS activities. This current view will serve as a baseline for future updates incorporating emerging disruptive technologies such as software-defined networking, over-the-top services, and virtualization.
