PoC Topics

From wiki


ENI PoC Topics are specific areas, often linked to a Work Item, where input or feedback from the ENI Proofs of Concept is needed. ENI PoC Topics help to focus PoC Projects on the most relevant topics for the ISG ENI, and to increase the relevance of their contributions.

ENI PoC Topics are identified and documented by ISG ENI. ENI PoC Topics may include templates for the PoC Contributions and deadlines to ensure that the PoC Contributions arrive on-time to be taken into account by the targeted WIs.

ENI PoC Topics

As described in the ENI PoC Framework, a PoC Team proposal shall address at least one goal relevant to ENI i.e. related with an ENI Use Cases, an ENI Requirements or the suitability of an ENI System Architecture aspect. The output of the PoC should provide feedback to the ISG ENI that should support the improvement of the output of the existing WIs. Alignment with existing activities is required. See table below.

Level 1 Level 2
Use Case Network Operations Policy-driven IP managed networks

Non-functional policy requirements

At least one of the External Reference points as enumerated in ETSI GS ENI 005 v1.1.1 will also be shown and tested.

Addressing a PoC Topic in a PoC Project

PoC Teams specify the targeted PoC Topic(s) in their PoC Proposal, and commit to provide the expected input or feedback in the requested format (template, if applicable) in a timely manner.

Feeding back the results

As soon as experimental results relevant for a given ENI PoC Topic are available (no need to wait for the PoC Project to be completed), the PoC Team creates a contribution and informs the ISG ENI by email (if the PoC Topic had a specific template for feedback contributions, it should be used). PoC Teams are also encouraged to contribute additional results and lessons learned during the PoC Project to the ISG ENI.
