Body
At the ITU-T SG11 plenary meeting (virtual, 1-10 December 2021), Q1/11
“Signaling and protocol architectures for telecommunication networks and
guidelines for implementations” created a new work item Q.IBN-SA “Signaling
architecture of Intent-Based Network for network evolution” (SG11-TD1824/GEN).

ITU-T Q.IBN-SA aims to provide the signaling architecture of Intent-Based
Network for network evolution. Based on the functional architecture of
Intent-Based Network, it specifies the mapping of reference points to
interfaces in the architecture of Intent-Based Network and defines the
protocols used for interfaces of Intent-Based Network. It will start the
standardization of the Intent-Based Network especially concerning its signaling
architecture.

ITU-T Q1/11 would like to thank you for your attention, feedback and
cooperation on this topic. The A.1 justification form for the new work item
Q.IBN-SA is contained in the attachment.
