The underlying role of the Pulver/Peek/Marschel ".tel"
TLD is to facilitate the smooth convergence of global communications services between
the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) and the Internet by allowing telephone
numbers to be used as a common addressing mechanism for both PSTN and Internet services.
To this end, the Pulver/Peek/Marschel application leverages the ".tel" TLD for
the provisioning of global ENUM services (RFC 2916) to create effective competition
for the "e164.arpa" implementation being advanced by the IETF and the ITU.
Why is competition so important in the ENUM directory space and why is a new TLD
required to achieve the objective?
The ITU and "e164.arpa":
The Pulver/Peek/Marschel ".tel" application starts from the assumption that the ITU
has every right to advance the "e164.arpa" implementation of ENUM services and we
fully expect this implementation to proceed.
Delegation Of Control: As articulated
in the most recent ITU-ENUM updates, the "e164.arpa" implementation clearly delegates
control over ENUM services to 200+ national PSTN regulatory entities. Within
this vision, every country is being given the power to define if, how and when ENUM
services will be deployed within their given country-code under the "e164.arpa" TLD.
Interests Are Being Served By "e164.arpa"? The "e164.arpa" model of delegating
control to the existing PSTN regulatory structure may serve the best interests of
the ITU but it clearly does not serve the best interests of the emerging IP-Communications
Valid View From The Emerging IP-Communications Industry: Delegation
of control of ENUM services under "e164.arpa" will have the tendency to both slow
down, and dramatically complicate the deployment of IP-Communications services on
a global basis.
What Is The Pulver/Peek/Marschel ".tel" TLD Position?
The best interests of the Internet community in general and the emerging Internet-Telephony
industry in specific will be best served by the creation of effective competition
for the "e164.arpa" implementation of ENUM services.
Why Is A New TLD Required?
The "e164.arpa" implementation has been validated by the IETF and by the ITU, and
it is being presented to the market right now as "the standard TLD" for ENUM services.
The role of the ".tel" TLD is to provide effective and appropriate validation for
an alternative implementation of ENUM services. Without appropriate validation
a level playing field will not exist in this important directory services space.
The provisioning of ENUM directory services on a global basis
is a requirement for the emerging Internet-Telephony industry.
for services in this space will clearly advance the best interest of the Internet
community and the emerging Internet-Telephony industry.
“.tel” TLD will enable effective competition in this important global Internet addressing
