Open Mobile Naming Authority (OMNA)
OMNA is the operational naming authority established by WAP (as WAP Interim Naming Authority – WINA) and inherited by OMA. The goal of OMNA is to foster interoperability and compatibility between implementations utilizing OMA technology through the registration and mediation of assigned names and numbers. OMNA is specifically concerned with names and numbers not already administered by other bodies (e.g., IANA
The current OMNA process is based on the WINA process established by WAP. Until an OMA version is developed, the WAP WINA process document
should be used as a guide. It describes the overall purpose of OMNA, how numbers and names are allocated, etc. Please read this document before submitting a request for an assigned name or number.
Requests for Assigned Names or Numbers
Requests for OMNA assigned names or numbers should be submitted via the OMNA request form by selecting the appropriate Name Space. Requests will be reviewed by the OMNA Secretary and the Release Planning & Management Committee who will grant the OMNA assigned names or numbers when the requirements outlined in the Process document have been fulfilled’. The assignment of a name or number will be recorded in the OMNA database.
To get to a form to submit a request, there is a link available on the relevant pages listed below. Alternatively, this page
