ITU Q14/15 would like to bring the following comments on IETF CCAMPâ€™s ASON-related work to the attention of IETF CCAMP WG: 1. Q14/15 has been monitoring the work on ASON routing solutions, and strongly supports CCAMPâ€™s continued work to address ASON requirements in the routing protocols. We have noted the new draft (draft-dimitri-ccamp-ason-routing-sol-00.txt) and generally support its directions, although the draft is still incomplete at this time. Q14/15 requests that future working group drafts on this topic be liaised to Q14/15 for their information and comment. 2. Q14/15 have also noted the work on ASON signaling solutions taking place in CCAMP. We understand that this work diverges in many respects from the solutions defined in ITU-T Recommendation G.7713.2. Q14/15 continues to be interested in collaboratively exploring any opportunities for convergence of signaling solutions, as previously stated in our Liaison of February 2004, and to that end request that CCAMP continue liaison with Q.14/15 regarding any future signaling efforts that are ASON-related. In general, it is requested that CCAMP notify Q.14/15 when ASON-related drafts are nearing completion. While some members of Q14/15 have participated in CCAMP activities such as joint design teams, their participation does not constitute agreement of Q14/15 itself with the output. We strongly suggest that CCAMP liaises such documents to ITU for review prior to publishing as an RFC (for example, just preceding or following WG Last Call), in order to ensure continued mutual understanding of the requirements. Note: This liaison is sent with an action date of January 27, 2006 in order to allow for any liaisons to be discussed at the February meeting of ITU-T SG15.
