After reviewing and endorsing the report of the NGN Management Focus
Group (NGNMFG), Study Group 4 agreed to continue the NGNMFG under the
attached terms of reference. More specifically, SG4 agreed the NGNMFG
should enhance its primary deliverable, the NGN Management
Specification Roadmap, which identifies a set of existing and draft
management specifications to support NGN Release 1. The NGNMFG was
asked to give particular attention to identifying specification gaps
and stimulating the "filling of these gaps" as well as promoting the
harmonization of "overlapping" specifications.
Though it is recognized that the current Roadmap (v1.0) needs
enhancement, SG4 agreed it warranted broad visibility and thus it has
been made available on the public side of the SG 4 web site at the
following URL:  
It should be noted that the Roadmap currently identifies the
specifications of 8 organizations as applicable to NGN management, a
practice that is a hallmark of the NGNMFG activities. SG4 recognizes
that the development of the Roadmap is dependent on the participation
of members of your organization and expresses its thanks for that
Any additional participants of your organization that are interested in
contributing to NGNMFG activities and also accessing its documentation,
are requested to register as indicated at the NGNMFG web site:
