|Latest update||This Modification was withdrawn on 08 December 2016.|
What is the issue?
On the 8th of August 2016, the Proposer stated they want to withdraw the Modification Proposal (in accordance with the Right to Withdraw provisions in SEC Section D5.1.).
The Proposer noted three reasons for the withdrawal, summarised below:
- It was seen as adding limited value given that Suppliers would know in advance the mapping of EUI-64 to device type, since all devices have to be pre-notified to the Smart Meter Inventory before they are installed.
- It may lead to breaches of the IEEE obligation that EUI-64 number ranges are 95% used before requesting a new range
- There are concerns that existing supply chain arrangements would be put at risk if Suppliers and Manufacturers had agreements to use IEEE addresses for different purposes
No SEC Parties expressed their intent to adopt SECMP0014, in accordance with SEC Section D5.4, and so the Modification Proposal was withdrawn.
What is the solution?
The proposed format is as follows:
Type_id: 8-Bits split between type_category and category_variant
