At this time we find ourselves with a mixed result between the in room sentiment at IETF 80 (which was negative to allocation) and the subsequent consensus poll (which was neutral/positive to allocation). As such, a final consensus poll is warranted to establish rough consensus in either direction.
Please respond to this email by May 24, 2011 with either a ‘yes’ (indicating allocation should occur) or a ‘no’ (indicating allocation should be denied). Please respond regardless of whether you commented at IETF 80 or to the below consensus poll.
During IETF 80 one of the agenda topics discussed was whether to approve a request received by IANA for allocation of additional NAS-port-type values relating to Wimax as described below
Type of Assignment :
TBD for WIMAX- LBS : WiMAX location based service
The snippet of meeting notes relating to this topic are show below:
---- <meeting note snippet begin>---------------------------
Request for registration for NAS-port-type. Under 3575, falls under expert review. This request is for NAS-port-type relating to WiMax
- 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.
- Bernard takes the general comment of only allocating one as the response to take back to the request. Given consensus here, will verify that opinion in the reflector.
---- <meeting note snippet end>---------------------------
The sentiment in the room was clearly against approving this IANA request and at this time we would like to confirm this on the mailing list.
Please respond to this email and state whether you are in favor or against approving this IANA request.
