Abstract

   This document describes the Namespace Identifier (NID) 'mef' for
   Uniform Resource Names (URNs) used to identify resources published by
   MEF Forum (http://www.mef.net).  MEF specifies and manages resources
   that utilize this URN identification model.  Management activities
   for these and other resources types are handled by the manager of the
   MEF Assigned Names and Numbers (MANN) registry.

1.  Introduction

   The MEF Forum (MEF), is a nonprofit international industry standards
   organization, dedicated to the worldwide adoption of Carrier Ethernet
   (CE) networks and services.  The forum creates specifications in the
   area of Services, Architecture, Operations and Management.

   As part of these specifications efforts, there is a need to identify
   identifiers in a managed namespace that are unique and persistent.
   To ensure that this namespace's uniqueness is absolute, a
   registration of a specific Unified Resource Name (URN) URN Syntax
   [RFC2141] Namespace Identifier (NID) for use by MEF is being
   specified in this document, in full conformance with the NID
   registration process specified in URN Namespace Definition Mechanism
   [RFC3406].
