R-CORD Service

The RCORD Service represents the Subscriber in the service chain. This service is always located at the beginning of a chain.


The R-CORD service has the following three models:

  • RCORDService. In addition to the standard Service model fields such as name, adds the following R-CORD-specific fields:
    • access. Type of access service. Currently the only usable value is "voltha".
  • RCORDSubscriber. This model extends ServiceInstance and holds several subscriber-related fields:
    • creator. The user that created the subscriber. Data plane services that implement compute resources may be able to leverage the creator field to account for ownership of those compute resources.
    • status. [enabled | disabled | pre-provisioned | awaiting-auth | auth-failed]. The status of the subscriber, often determined by the workflow driver.
    • c_tag, s_tag. VLAN tags associated with this subscriber.
    • onu_device. Serial number of subscriber's ONU. Must match an ONU Device in an access service.
    • mac_address. MAC address of subscriber.
    • tech_profile_id. This together with the technology of the ONU associated with the subscriber must match the profile_id and technology of a TechnologyProfile object from the olt-service service.
    • nas_port_id.
    • circuit_id.
    • remote_id.
    • upstream_bps. Bandwidth profile for upstream.
    • downstream_bps. Bandwidth profile for downstream.
  • RCORDIpAddress. Holds an IP address that is associated with a subscriber. These are typically created by the workflow driver, when it handles DHCP messages.
    • subscriber. Relation to the subscriber that this IP address applies to.
    • ip. IP Address.
    • description. A short description of the IP Address.
  • BandwidthProfile. Holds a bandwidth profile.
    • name. Name of this bandwidth profile.
    • cir. Committed information rate.
    • cbs. Committed burst size.
    • eir. Excess information rate.
    • ebs. Excess burst size.
    • air. Access information rate.

Example Tosca - Create a Subscriber

The following TOSCA recipe creates:

  • RCORDSubscriber
  • BandwidthProfile
tosca_definitions_version: tosca_simple_yaml_1_0
  - custom_types/rcordsubscriber.yaml
  - custom_types/bandwidthprofile.yaml

        - upstream_bps:
            node: high_speed_bp
            relationship: tosca.relationships.BelongsToOne
        - downstream_bps:
            node: high_speed_bp
            relationship: tosca.relationships.BelongsToOne

NOTE: an onu_device with the provided serial number must exist in the system. For more information about ONU Devices, please refer to the vOLTService guide.

Integration with other Services

The R-CORD Service has no western neighbors, as it is always the root of a subscriber service chain. It will have a westbound neighbor, which is typically an access service.

If the R-CORD Service is configured with access=voltha, the following requirements apply:

  • There are two provider_service linked to the R-CORD Servioce.
  • First one is VOLT_SERVICE which exposes an API called has_access_device(onu_serial_number) that returns a boolean. This is used to validate that the ONU the subscriber is pointing to really exists.
  • The VOLT_SERVICE also exposes API called get_olt_technology_from_unu_sn(onu_serial_number) and get_tech_profile(technology, tech_profile_id) that returns a boolean. This is used to validate that the Technology Profile the subscriber is pointing to really exists. See Technology Profile Management for more informations.
  • Second service is ONOS_SERVICE which adds a rest endpoint to the Sadis application in order to flush the cache for a single subscriber.This provides an endpoint to flush the cache for a single subscriber as well as flush the entire cache.

    Synchronizer workflow

The R-CORD Service synchronizer implements no sync steps as it does not directly interact with any external components. It does implement one model policy.


The policy manages the service chain associated with the subscriber. If the subscriber is in pre-provisioned status, then no work is done. Otherwise the policy attempts to bring the service chain into compliance with the status field. Statuses of enabled are allocated a service chain. Statuses of awaiting-auth, auth-failed, or disabled are prevented from having a service chain.

The service chain typically proceeds eastbound from the RCORDSubscriber to an access service instance, such as VOLTServiceInstance.
