Body
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:
http://www.itu.int/ITU-T/studygroups/com04/roadmap.html 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 support.

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:
