The working group is chartered to work on issues related to the deployment of CLNP in the Internet. The first area of this group's work has been the learning necessary to start deploying OSI in Internet networks. This phase includes planning for OSI deployment by creating routing plans for regional networks and education on using OSI routing protocols.
This first area of the group's work will be on-going as we continue to deploy OSI in the Internet. This step has lead to people deploying OSI for pilot projects and demonstrations of OSI.
The second step of deploying OSI will be the transition of OSI from a pilot service to a production service. During this phase we will work on specifying the network debugging tools and test beds. We will need to track the level of OSI support in the Internet. We will need to provide documentation for new users of OSI on the Internet.
Submit to the IESG as an Informational RFC, a description of OSI network layer debugging methods.

Submit to the IESG for Proposed Standard, a requirements document specifying what network tools are needed on every OSI host and router.
Post as an Internet-Draft, a tutorial for CLNP OSI routing protocols, including ES-IS, CLNP, IS-IS, and IDRP.
Provide a forum to discuss OSI routing plans by email or in group discussions.
Post as an Internet-Draft, a list of OSI Network Utilities available in the public domain and from vendors. This list will be passed over to the NOC tools Group effort for joint publication.
