Uniform Resource Name (URN) Namespace for the National Emergency Number
                           Association (NENA)

Abstract

   This document describes the Namespace Identifier (NID) "nena" for
   Uniform Resource Name (URN) resources published by the National
   Emergency Number Association (NENA).  NENA defines and manages
   resources that utilize this URN model.  Management activities for
   these and other resource types are provided by the NENA Registry
   System (NRS).

1.  Introduction

   The National Emergency Number Association (NENA) is currently in the
   process of setting standards, processes, and procedures for the use
   of an IP-based Emergency Services IP Network (ESInet) for all public
   safety entities in North America.  Some of the solutions being
   developed by NENA require XML namespaces that are managed so that
   they are unique and persistent.  To assure that the uniqueness is
   absolute, the registration of a specific Uniform Resource Name (URN)
   [RFC2141] Namespace ID (NID) for use by NENA is required.  This
   document defines and registers such a namespace in accordance with
   [RFC3406].

   Declaration of syntactic structure:

      The Namespace Specific String (NSS) of all URNs that use the
      "nena" NID will have the following structure:
         {NENAclass}:{ClassSpecificString}

   The "NENAclass" conforms to the URN syntax requirements [RFC2141] and
   defines a specific class of resource type.  Each class will have a
