    ENUM & VOIP The Global ENUM Matrix
    posted by tbyfield on Friday June 07 2002, @12:51AM

    rfassett writes "For those interested in a quick snapshot of the ENUM delegation process by the ITU, a table has been prepared called the Global ENUM Matrix and is located here or from a link at enum.info."

    In summary, 23 requests have been made to RIPE with 5 accepted by the ITU and 18 objected as of May 31. The Matrix shows this by country code and requesting entity with links to each request, acceptance, and/or objection made. When the Matrix becomes all "green", I suppose we will then have Global ENUM interoperability per RFC 2916. Far easier said than done that will take, in all likelihood, years to accomplish.

    It will interesting to see how 1.e164.arpa will be delegated given the US Government's mandate for competition at all levels for ENUM. Per RFC 2916, there can be but one Tier 1 registry per country code. So, the eventual Tier 1 registry delegation for 1.e164.arpa must be accomplished through a compeititve bidding process (this is a decision each country can make on its own i.e. not mandatory that the process be competitive at Tier 1).

    Neustar has approached this eventual bidding process by requesting and receiving a trial ( that is set to expire in November (though may be extended at that time by the ITU). In other words, a practice run it seems as a tune up to the bid. Thus far, no other entity within the "1" country code jurisdiction (North America) has made such a request for a trial though I do not think this would be disallowed (not sure). I am not even sure what formal process with the ITU Neustar was able to perform to receive this trial delegation though this may be documented somewhere. Anyway, it will be interesting to see how this bidding process unfolds for the potentially billion dollar 1.e164.arpa registry.

    Though some parties, if not many, would characterize ENUM implementation per RFC 2916 as still in highly speculative stage. Verisign might be one such party. We'll know more about the viability of the IETF's version of ENUM by the end of the year. Through a lot of effort, it seems to be on track to accomplish this much. In the meantime, the Global ENUM Matrix will continue to chart the ITU delegations (both accepted and objected) in quick snapshot format.

    Let me see if I get this straight: Neustar talks to the regulating agency and is told to prove the concept, and then sets up a trial registry?

    How is this any different from IOD and .WEB? They went to IANA, were told to prove their concept, and set up a trial registry. The only difference I see is that Neustar got a trial zone to use, and IOD asked (and were give the go-ahead) to use an external zone.

    History repeat itself.
