Regarding the below comments:
- Stefan comments that there’s already type for WiFi so not sure why another one is needed, just one.
- Klaas comments that agrees with Stefan’s comments.
- Nancy comments that looking at the current assignment is that there is only 1 allocation per mode.
Maybe it wasn't made clear why WiMAX requires these assignment. An email was sent recently and also this was discussed previously on the RADEXT reflector (See Nov. 2009).
The AAA in WiMAX is responsible to interact with various types of WiMAX NASes and also non-WiMAX NASes: The AAA thus needs to be able to determine which type of NAS it communicates with to determine the context of the Access-Request. WiMAX decided that it want an explicit indication of the type of NAS and hence wants to use the NAS-Port-Type to determine the context of the call.
The question is whether or not the NAS-Port-Type is the attribute to be used for that. The answer seems to be yes.
Second, the objection also seems to be based the number being requested. Is there a shortage of numbers? I don't think so. This was also discussed by the group in the past.
