This is a request for discussion of a new newsgroup, comp.dcom.frame-relay.

Frame Relay is a protocol for sending datagrams ("frames") through
a switched network.  An encapsulation of TCP/IP in this framing
is described in RFC 1294.

The purpose of the group is to exchange information between users
of public Frame Relay services, designers and manufacturers of
customer equipment that speaks the protocol, and comparisons of
this approach to other complementary technologies such as ATM,
PPP over leased lines, and ISDN.

The best mailing lists discussion I have seen have been on the IPLPDN
(IP in Large Public Data Networks) list, but those have been rather
narrowly focussed on implementation details.  A broader list that
included more of a system designer or user point of view should be
useful.

Discussion will take the month of June, and hopefully the vote will
run in July with a group to be created 1 August.

Please forward this as appropriate.

thanks,

This is a request for discussion for a new Usenet newsgroup,
comp.dcom.frame-relay.

Frame Relay networks are defined by CCITT Recommendation Q.922 ("ISDN
Data Link Layer Specification for Frame Mode Bearer Services"), ANSI
T1.618-1991 ("ISDN - Core Aspects of Frame Protocol for Use with Frame
Relay Bearer Service"), and Internet RFC 1490 ("Multiprotocol
Interconnect over Frame Relay").  Frame Relay networks have been
deployed by Internet service providers, inter-exchange telephone
carriers, and local and regional telephone companies.

The objective of the newsgroup is to provide implementors and users of
frame relay with an open forum for the discussion of protocols,
equipment, pricing, service, and other details of access to and
building of frame relay networks.

The group is to be unmoderated.

Voting
------
The hope is to conduct a vote starting on or before 25 February, with
votes to be collected by the Usenet Volunteer Vote-takers.  This is
not the time to send in votes.

Current discussion and rationale
--------------------------------
In the absence of an particular newsgroup for frame relay, this topic
has been brought up in a variety of newsgroups peripheral to the focus
of the proposed group.  In particular, the newsgroups 'comp.dcom.isdn'
and 'comp.dcom.cell-relay' appear to have the substantial
concentration of interested and knowlegable parties.

Given that Frame Relay is beginning to emerge as a mainstream WAN
service, and given that discussions of Frame Relay technology are
appearing with increasing frequency on other newsgroups such as
comp.dcom.cell-relay, perhaps now is the time to create a newsgroup to
provide a home for this topic.  Below is a draft charter, written by Tom
Jones, ex-chair of the Frame Relay Forum and continuing proponent of
Frame Relay services and technologies.  It is intended as a starting
point for discussion over the next month as to what shape a
Frame Relay newsgroup might take. Comments are welcome and encouraged.

As per Usenet "policy"/tradition, the following timeline will be adhered to:

7/21/94 - 8/21/94  
Discussion period

8/21/94 - ~9/21/94  
Voting (if it is generally agreed that this group would be a Good Thing).  
We will defer to the Usenet Volunteer Votetakers at Qualcomm to setup and 
conduct the vote.

Below is the proposed charter.  The Followup-To: field has been set to 
news.groups.  Please direct all comments concerning this Request for 
Discussion there.  

DRAFT CHARTER:

To provide a mechanism for the discussion of issues related to the
technology and application of frame relay in communications networks.

Topics expected to be discussed include (but are not limited to) the
following examples:

- frame relay standards and proposed standards
- applications of frame relay
- user experiences with frame relay
- relationship and comparison of frame relay to other technologies,
  including asynchronous transfer mode (ATM), cell relay, SMDS, X.25 packet
  switching, IP routing, ISDN, Broadband ISDN, etc.
- announcements of conferences, seminars, etc., related to frame relay
- news of the availability of frame relay products or services
- testing and interoperability of frame relay
- information related to performance and implementation of frame relay
- research findings
- activities of The Frame Relay Forum and other similar organizations with
  activities related to frame relay
- sources of additional information regarding frame relay

This newsgroup is not intended to be a forum in which standards are
developed, although it may be expected to relate news pertaining to
standards and to the progress of recognized standards bodies.

Hi,

I have received several direct correspondences indicating support for a
new newsgroup catering to frame-relay.  I was absent during much of the
discussion period though due to a family illness, so if anyone is
adamantly opposed to the creation of this newsgroup, please speak up
now.

Likewise, if there were suggestions for modification of the charter,
please forward them again.

Barring widespread opposition, I propose that we move to begin the
voting period on 8/21/94 and let it run till 9/21/94.  As mentioned
earlier, I will defer to the good folks at Qualcomm to handle the
vote. The CFV will be sent to the newsgroups listed below.  A second
CFV will be sent approximately halfway through the voting period (the
5th or 6th of September).

HOW TO VOTE

Send MAIL to:   [email protected]
Just Replying should work if you are not reading this on a mailing
list.

The subject in your mail message must contain the name of the group to
allow your vote to be correctly handled by an automated vote-counter,
if you do not do this you will receive a message asking you to
resubmit your vote with the name of the group that you are voting for
in the subject line.

Please do not quote the entire CFV in your vote, it will confuse the
automatic vote counter and will earn you a duplicate vote message.

Your mail message should contain one of the following statements:
      I vote YES on comp.dcom.frame-relay
      I vote NO on comp.dcom.frame-relay

You may also ABSTAIN in place of YES/NO - this will not affect the
outcome.  Anything else may be rejected by the automatic vote counting
program.  The votetaker will respond to your received ballots with a
personal acknowledgement by mail - if you do not receive one within
several days, try again.  It's your responsibility to make sure your
vote is registered correctly.

Only one vote per person, no more than one vote per account.  No votes
will be accepted from system accounts (i.e. root, news, uucp) or
anonymous accounts.  Addresses and votes of all voters will be
published in the final voting results list.
