1 Introduction

The Connection Point Services: Phonebook Data Structure specifies a format for documenting point of presence (POP) entry information and a logical grouping of POPs based on their geographic location or area. Connection Point Services (CPS) enables the automatic distribution and updating of custom phone books. These phone book files contain one or more POP entries, with each POP supplying a telephone number that provides dial-up access to an Internet access point. The companion region file contains geographic location information for each POP entry.

Sections 1.7 and 2 of this specification are normative. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
