OPS-NM Interim Meeting


At the last IETF OPS Area Open meeting we started a good
discussion between the OPS NM folk and some Operators.
We would like to continue that discussion and so we
are planning an OPS-NM Interim, or you could also say

 Net Management Protocol Folk and Net Operators - Reality Check #2

We consider it an IETF Interim Meeting for the OPS-AREA
Network Management people so that we can meet with real
operators to try and understand their needs and to explain to
them how we think that our NM related work in the IETF 
can help them to manage their networks.

We probably need to have similar sessions in the future to meet
with people who operate enterprise networks, because their
requirements may be different.

We are still working on the agenda, however below you will find
a prelimenary agenda proposal. Any suggestions should be 
sent to Randy (randy@psg.com) and Bert (bwijnen@lucent.com)

We have limited space for this meeting.

Those who plan to attend, pls send a short email to
Bert Wijnen, bwijnen@lucent.com to let us know.

-------------- OPS-NM Interim Meeting details ------------------
The plan is to have this meeting immediately following the next NANOG
meeting, namely NANOG 22. That means:

  May 20-22   NANOG 22, ends around 5pm on 22nd

  May 22-23  OPS-NM Interim, starts on 22nd 7pm 
                    So we plan to meet 7-10pm on 22nd
                    9-1pm 23rd possibly 2-4pm 23rd too.

NANOG 22 and OPS-NM Interim will be in Scottsdale 
Arizona, USA, in the Doubltree Paradise Valley.

For NANOG and hotel registration, pls visit: www.nanog.org

The hotel rate ($119) for NANOG can also be used for OPS-NM,
that is if you attend NANOG as well. It may not apply if
you only stay for OPS-NM (note OPS-NM is not yet known at 
the DoubleTree as a meeting identifier), but we have heard 
even lower rates if NANOG is not mentioned.
