The fifth in a series of conference calls to discuss a reliable transport
protocol to be used with MoIP was held on Friday, June 29, 2001.

As agreed at the Porto Seguro, BR, meeting of ITU-T SG16, the goal of these
conference calls is to develop a joint contribution to the next meeting of
TR-30.1 giving requirements for the MoIP reliable transport mechanism, and
possibly an evaluation of existing protocols against those requirements.
Once the requirements and possible evaluations have been presented to TIA
TR-30.1 and agreed to by them, the requirements and possible evaluations
are, if possible, to be presented to the IETF 51 meeting in London, UK,
during the week of 8/5/2001. Some parties may present a draft protocol
proposal to that meeting.

On the call from The CommWorks Corp. were:
-    Fred Lucas; and
-    Jim Renkel.

>From Cisco Systems were:
-    Herb Wildfeuer; and
-    Mehryar Garakani.

The call began by discussing the draft summary of the fourth conference
call. It was pointed out that the call was held Tuesday, June 26, not
Friday, June 22. With that correction, the summary was accepted.

Then, two new conference calls were scheduled. The schedule for the next
three calls is:
-    Friday,  July  6, 2001, 10:30 A.M., CDT
-    Tuesday, July 10, 2001, 10:30 A.M., CDT
-    Friday,  July 13, 2001, 10:30 A.M., CDT
The dial-in bridge number remains +1.847.262.0999, conference ID # 06647
("0MOIP" on a touch-tone keypad.). Because the TR-30.1 meeting is the
week of July 16, 2001, these will be the last conference calls before
that meeting.

Next, it was agreed that Jim Renkel will edit the joint contribution to the
TR-30.1 meeting. Jim will have a first draft of the joint contribution
available before the July 6 conference call, based on all language received
by noon, CDT, July 5. The goal is to have all new language for the joint
contribution first crafted by close-of-business July 6,2001. The two
conference calls the following week will be used to review, revise, and
approve the document.

It was then agreed that the reliable transport requirements will be written
in the style given by IETF RFC 2119.

Finally, Mehryar Garakani's draft language for packet-based, sequenced,
expedited delivery, and low latency requirements was discussed and modified.
Additional requirements for robustness in the face of congestion control and
transmit rate limiting, and for being light weight were discussed. Jim will
include the language in the first draft of the joint contribution for the
next conference call.
