Numerical Addressing Space Management Team (NASM) Working Group

[Draft Charter]

Scope of Work: NASM is responsible the management of ViDeNet numerical address space. This group designs the numerical address space and supporting routing schemes, including E.164int integration, hierarchical and flat structures, with particular emphasis on the root level and top tier architectures. Of particular importance is the alignment of existing h.323 addressing to E.164-like structures, in order to prepare the way for an eventual migration toward full DNS-based dialing, ENUM and related numerical address translation schemes. This group is responsible for the allocation of ViDeNet address space to lower tier domains. In particular, the group identifies which organizations and research networks will be responsible for managing national gatekeepers. The group's operational responsibilities include the review of new ViDeNet membership requests, assignment of address space, and configuration of the top-level gatekeeper meshes. Members of this group will have root administrative access to the ViDeNet management system and all top-level gatekeepers and will ensure the integrity of data registered with ViDeNet. All address assignments made by this group are final. Architectural recommendations of this group require the support of the ViDeNet Zone Administrators.
