John Rhoads is developing a complementary document that addresses this. * 6. WAN Testing in Korea utilized NIST tools, but the vendors were required to remove the wrapper. It will be a while before NIST is able to support the integrated message. Manny noted that at the moment Continua will not be sending data directly to PCD, but it is possible they will send via an intermediary. This will be added to the Joint PC/TC meeting prior to the F2F.

  • 60. Todd is working on TF Volume 3 which will include what was Volume 2 Appendix D. Manny to ask Todd
  • 66. John Garguilo will ask members to take responsibility for maintaining the profiles and keep the latest version on the ftp site. Companies will be able to constrain these further. Gary will lead an effort to coordinate this. Manny indicated that the MWB and Peter Rontey’s tutorial are posted on the ftp site. If any changes are required members should send Manny an email. Peter has limited time available because his responsibilities have changed. He may have room in an upcoming tutorial but is not offering them regularly.
