This liaison statement informs you about the current state and the plans of the
NGN Management Focus Group (NGNMFG). This focus group was established in
September 2004 to organize and undertake a centralized approach regarding
specification of NGN Management related to FCAPS interfaces, in particular to
support NGN Release 1. Under the provisions of ITU-T Recommendation A.7, the
NGNMFG was organized under the sponsorship of SG 4. Since its inception, the
NGNMFG has worked on its main deliverable, the NGN Management Roadmap. Recently
version 3.1 was completed. The NGNMFG reported about the progress of its
activities to the February 2007 SG 4 meeting. At this meeting, SG 4, decided to
continue the NGNMFG under modified terms of reference, justified in part by the
need for additional deliverables. The most recent version of the Roadmap
document and the terms of reference under which the NGNMFG will continue its
operation (v5.0) are available from the public part of the ITU-T SG 4 website: In order to
support the role of the NGN Management Roadmap document as a complete and
comprehensive set of NGN Management specifications, you are kindly requested to
bring any related specification activities in your organizations to the
attention of the NGNMFG. Any participants of your organization that are
interested in NGNMFG activities and documentation are invited to register as
indicated at the aforementioned website.
