    An MFP Alerts teleconference is planned for Tuesday, March 28, 11 AM EST (8 AM PST).
    The call will last for no more than 1 hour.

    Purpose: To determine if the following items are of concern for MFP Alerts.
    From the last teleconference minutes:

            a) Fax Modem: The Printer MIB current defines a Channel Type of "chFax(18)". Ira mentioned in the MFP Alerts BOF that this has been modeled as an interface by other groups. An Interface group also has been included within the Counters MIB. What information is required to adequately model a Fax Modem?
            b) MFP MIB Objects: Xerox (Thomas Silver) has indicated they would like to make a proposal on this subject. It has been noted that the generation of even a small number of objects will certainly be a much more significant undertaking than the other task. However, we should carefully examine the benefit of additional objects and, if the value is significant, they will be added.
            c) Service: From the minutes of the last teleconference; "It was also noted that to properly define alerts, services as well as physical entities are needed". There appears to also be a counter argument. We need to obtain a "rough" consensus on this issue and then take the appropriate action.
