PRISP (ISP Provisiong) Project (was - Ipal project)

  • From: william(at)
  • Date: Mon Mar 15 17:46:25 2004

  Due to previous ipal name collision discovered last week the project has 
been renamed PRISP, big thanks to GertJan Hagenaars for this name. Again
if people would like to participate, this project will develop opensource
software (or framework and database schema for such software) to help ISPs
in tracking setup of new network services and connections. This would
include allocation of ip addresses and database of such allocations, database
of circuits and network devices, administration and colloboration on actual
provisioning process for new connections (both for physical circuits and 
logical connections such as for colo customer), etc. 

  At some distant future project homepage will be located at
  currently there is a sourceforge project info at:

starting it all again to keep track of this in archives):

Subject: Open discussion - service provisioning components

We'll open the discussion with what people would like to see in the
service provisioning database software. Try to think of what network
engineers are doing when setting up new customer and which settings
might be general enough to be part of some database as well as which
of those settings can be automated in some way.

Might also be good if in your reply, you order these settings by how they
come up in the actual provisioning process.
