Body
The IAB would like to bring to the ITU-T's attention the appointment of Ms
Deborah Brungard as the new IETF Liaison Manager to the ITU-T for MPLS.

The IETF-ITU-T MPLS liaison role helps facilitate communication between the
IETF and the ITU-T on matters of MPLS. The MPLS liaison manager is responsible
for ensuring the liaisons from the IETF on MPLS are routed to the correct
study group(s) in the ITU-T and any incoming liaison from the ITU-T on MPLS is
communicated to the proper working groups, usually MPLS, CCAMP, and PWE3
working groups.

Deborah Brungard has been with AT&T for more than 28 years with experience in
network and service management. She is a Lead Member of Technical Staff in
AT&T's Network Technologies Unit. She is IETF Routing Area's CCAMP Co-Chair,
she has co-chaired CCAMP for more than 6 years. CCAMP (Common Control and
Measurement Plane) is responsible for GMPLS and works cooperatively with MPLS,
L2VPN, PWE3, OSPF, PCE, IDR, and ISIS. She is also the Routing Area
Directorate Coordinator and Routing Area Secretary. Deborah has actively
contributed in SG15 for more than 15 years, including as an Editor (in the
early 2000's). She is very familiar with the ITU-T process, she was Chair of
ANSI (American National Standards) T1X1.5 (Optical Standards) for several
years in the early 2000's.

For the IAB,
Russ Housley
IAB Chair
