The third in a series of conference calls to discuss a reliable transport
protocol to be used with MoIP was held on Friday, June 22, 2001, between
representatives of The CommWorks Corp. and Cisco Systems.

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.
It is understood that there is a desire, once the requirements and possible
evaluations have been presented to TIA TR-30.1 and agreed to by them, to have
the requirements and possible evaluations presented to the IETF 51 meeting
in London, UK, during the week of 8/5/2001. It is also understood that some
parties plan to present a draft protocol proposal to that meeting.

On the call from The CommWorks Corp. were:
-    Jim Renkel.

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

The call began by discussing the proposed summary of the first conference
call. Cisco asked that the following sentence be added at the end of the
4th paragraph (Which begins "The call began by discussing ...."):
     It is also understood that some parties plan to present a draft
     protocol proposal to that meeting.
With that addition, the meeting summary was agreed to and approved. After
making that addition, Jim will send the meeting summary to relevant e-mail
reflectors.

Next, the proposed summary of the second conference call was reveiwed and
approved as proposed. Jim will also send that summary to relevant e-mail
reflectors.

Next, the CommWorks proposed language for media stream / protocol stack
switching was discussed. The definitions and first proposed agreement were
tentatively accepted as proposed. There was much discussion of the second
proposed agreement, and Jim will redraft it. Also, these proposals will be
copied into a Word document so that changes can be tracked.

Next, the meeting returned to Table 1 of CommWork's PCM01-020 contribution
to the Nice, FR, rapporteur's meeting. It was agreed to split the "reliable"
characteristic into "error detection" and "error correction" requirements. It
was also agreed that "non-erasing" and "non-duplicating" were requirements for
the reliable transport protocol to be used with MoIP. Jim will draft language
stating these requirements.

Finally, the next conference call was scheduled for Tuesday, 6/26/2001,
10:30 A.M., CDT, 8:30 A.M. PDT, with the same arrangements as this conference
call.
