Abstract

   This document describes the basic schema for IEEE 802.21 Media-
   Independent Information Service, an RDF (Resource Description
   Framework) schema defined in IEEE 802.21.  This document serves as
   the Specification required by the IANA to maintain a global registry
   for storing the RDF schema.

1.  Introduction

   IEEE 802.21 is a standard that specifies 802 media access-independent
   mechanisms that optimize handovers between heterogeneous 802 systems
   and between 802 systems and cellular systems [802.21].

   IEEE 802.21 provides a set of handover-enabling functions within the
   protocol stacks of the network elements and a new entity created
   therein called the Media-Independent Handover Function (MIHF).  A
   media independent Service Access Point (called the MIH_SAP) and
   associated primitives are defined to provide MIHF users with access
   to the services of the MIHF.  The MIHF provides the following
   services. 1) The Media Independent Event Service (MIES) detects
   events and delivers triggers from both local as well as remote
   interfaces. 2) The Media Independent Command Service (MICS) provides
   a set of commands for the MIHF users to control handover relevant
   link states. 3) The Media Independent Information Service (MIIS)
   provides the network elements with the information about neighboring
   networks, thus enabling making of more effective handover decisions
   across heterogeneous networks.  The first two services are out of the
   scope of this document.

   The MIIS defines information models and query mechanisms where a
   query mechanism depends on the information model which it is based
   on.  There are two types of information models in the MIIS for
   representing the same set of pre-defined pieces of information in
   different ways.  One information model is based on identifying each
   piece of information by a unique integer value.  The other
   information model is based on RDF (Resource Description Framework)
   [RDF] in which each piece of information is identified by a URI
   (Uniform Resource Identifiers) [RFC3986].  The two information models
   have different characteristics in terms of namespace management as
   well as query capability.  This document is intended for the latter
   type of information model.

   In RDF, an information model is described in the form of RDF schema
   [RDFS].  To provide extensibility in terms of defining new pieces of
   information in addition to the pre-defined ones, the RDF schema
   definition for MIIS consists of two parts; the basic and the extended
   schema.  An MIHF is pre-provisioned with the basic schema for
   querying information defined in the 802.21 specification.  The basic
   schema requires a persistent URL for its definition.  An extended
   schema is used for querying vendor-specific information and it does
   not require a persistent URL for its definition.

   This document describes the IEEE 802.21 basic schema, or an RDF
   schema used for IEEE 802.21 MIIS.  This document serves as the
   Specification required by the IANA to maintain a global registry for

   storing the RDF schema [RFC3688].  The basic schema definition is
   described in Section 2.  Information required by IANA for assigning a
   global registry for the basic schema is described in Section 4.

    Following codes are defined:

    1: Meters: in 2s-complement fixed-point 22-bit integer part with
    8-bit fraction. If AT = 1, an AltRes value 0.0 would indicate
    unknown altitude.  The most precise Altitude would have an AltRes
    value of 30.  Many values of AltRes would obscure any variation
    due to vertical datum differences.

    2: Floors: in 2s-complement fixed-point 22-bit integer part with
    8-bit fraction. AT = 2 for Floors enables representing altitude in
    a form more relevant in buildings which have different
    floor-to-floor dimensions.

3.  Security Considerations

   Beyond the considerations described in [RFC3688], there are no
   additional security considerations other than that was already found
   with any other IANA registry.

4.  IANA Considerations

   The IEEE 802.21 basic schema requires an IANA-assigned registry for
   an RDF schema.  According to [RFC3688], the following is the
   information needed by IANA.

   URI (please assign)
      The URI that identifies the IEEE 802.21 basic schema.

   XML
      The exact XML to be stored in the registry is described in
      Section 2, except that the word "URL_TO_BE_ASSIGNED" in the XML
      definition needs to be replaced with IANA-assigned URL for the
      stored XML.
