TITLE:   GUIDELINES FOR THE SPECIFICATION OF THE STRUCTURE OF THE
         DOMAIN SPECIFIC PART (DSP) OF THE ISO STANDARD NSAP ADDRESS

STATUS:  X3S3.3 WORKING DRAFT

Introduction

   There is a substantial amount of interest in providing guidance to
   private address administration authorities on preferred formats and
   semantics for the Domain Specific Part (DSP) of an NSAP address.  In
   particular it is felt that use of a limited number of preferred DSP
   formats would allow organizations to easily use intermediate and end
   systems from a variety of suppliers.  This technical report specifies
   the way in which the DSP may be constructed so as to facilitate
   efficient address assignment.

1.  Scope and Field of Application

   This Technical Report specifies a recommended syntax  and
   interpretation for the Domain Specific Part of an NSAP address.  NSAP
   Address Administration Authorities are urged to use this format when
   the equipment comprising an addressing domain is of a heterogeneous
   nature.
