       Uniform Resource Name (URN) Namespaces for Broadband Forum

Abstract

   This document describes the Namespace Identifiers (NIDs) "bbf",
   "broadband-forum-org", and "dslforum-org" for Uniform Resource Names
   (URNs) used to identify resources published by Broadband Forum (BBF).
   BBF specifies and manages resources that utilize these three URN
   identification models.  Management activities for these and other
   resource types are handled by BBF.

1.  Introduction

   Broadband Forum (BBF) is a non-profit industry alliance driving
   broadband wireline solutions and empowering converged packet networks
   worldwide to better meet the needs of vendors, service providers, and
   their customers.  BBF develops multi-service broadband packet
   networking specifications that address interoperability,
   architecture, and management.  Its work enables home, business, and
   converged broadband services, encompassing customer, access, and
   backbone networks.

   Occasionally, BBF specification efforts require identifiers in a
   managed namespace so that they are unique and persistent.  To ensure
   that the uniqueness is absolute, the registration of three specific
