Hi Rakesh,

(Copying the list.)

Thanks for the slides and explanation. I think it’s now much clearer. I reviewed them and here are my comments:

l  Page 3, suggest to add “Lack of common set of standard interfaces across IPAM system vendors” and “Lack of integration with DHCP server to get address records”

l  Page 6, suggest to add “Aggregated view, Dynamic allocation and reclaiming , Generic address assignment policies” and “Address pools: Unicast(Private/Public v4 addresses, v6 addresses), Multicast”

l  What do you mean “DNS mapping” on page 6?

l  Page 7, suggest to replace “ADDRESS SPACE MANAGEMENT (IPAM) SYSTEM” to “Coordinated Address Space Management System (CASM) ”, please see the architecture slides I sent.

l  Page 7 , what does “SDN/Legacy ” mean here? Does “SDN” in the architecture draft means SDN controller? Is the SDN controller place beside, up or down to the CASM System?

l  Would you please provide a use case for SDN scenario?

Hi Will,

After looking at the attached slides and the one I created earlier (attached here for everyone’s reference). I see one difference and that may help us in converging our thought process. Please look at slide#7 from the attached deck. Here is my take on it:

1.       I look at “CASM” as means to solve a common problem of address management for multiple use-case (although not shown in the slide 7).

2.       I look at “CASM” users not from use-case perspective such as BNG but rather from the perspective of implementation aspects. The most common users from my perspective would be

a.       In a virtualized DC, SDN controller need to assign IP addresses to workloads and virtual networks

b.       In a legacy data center (built with physical elements) proprietary tools/script to assign IP addresses to servers and network and firewall elements

c.       OSS/BBS to initialize/allocate/divide address poos

d.       Admin to allocate IP addresses if for some reason there is need to reserve addresses (may be, someone want to assign static address in an old fashion manner)

3.       Of course, we could draw/put another layer at top that shows BNG/3GPP/etc. But I did not put it intentionally since our CASM architecture does not stop any end use-case/market segment from using it.  After all, we all agree that this is the most common thing to solve wherever networks and a requirement for addressing scheme exist.

I hope, I am able to explain my thoughts behind the proposal and slide deck and the draft we had presented.

Subject: slides for CASM bof

Dear all,

After an online meeting today among proponents, we updated the preliminary version slides according to the CASM preparation online meeting yesterday. We’re sending them for wider discussion. The slides tried to cover and merge all the CASM documents,  for the bof to use. There are still some updating work to do before our f2f preparation meeting. Please help to review and let us know your thought.

(Please DON’T FORGET TO FILL THE DOODLE Marc sent, note that you need to choose the time zone of Chicago, which is central time of US.)

Dear Rakesh, There are still some missing part and we’ve marked them with red color in the slides. Please help.
