A Uniform Resource Name Namespace for the GSM Association (GSMA) and the
         International Mobile station Equipment Identity (IMEI)
                   draft-montemurro-gsma-imei-urn-16

Abstract

   This specification defines a Uniform Resource Name namespace for the
   GSMA (GSM Association)and a sub-namespace for the IMEI (International
   Mobile station Equipment Identity), and an associated parameter for
   the IMEISV (International Mobile station Equipment Identity and
   Software Version number).  The IMEI is 15 decimal digits long and the
   IMEISV is 16 decimal digits long and both are encoded using Binary
   Encoded Decimal (BCD).  The IMEI and IMEISV were introduced as part
   of the specification for Global System for Mobile communications(GSM)
   and are also now incorporated by the 3rd Generation Partnership
   Project (3GPP) as part of the 3GPP specification for GSM, the
   Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) and 3GPP LTE (Long
   Term Evolution).  The IMEI and IMEISV are used to uniquely identify
   Mobile Equipment within these systems and are managed by the GSMA.
