Title : Administrative Requirements for Deployment of ENUM in
Author(s) : P. Pfautz
Filename : draft-pfautz-na-enum-00.txt
Pages : 6

directions. In particular the current mechanisms for number
administration and number portability in North America will require
establishment of a new administrative function for managing the
domain name entries for ported numbers.
