THE ORGINS OF THE FIRST GLOBAL TELECOMMUNICATIONS STANDARDS
The global deployment of telegraphy required standards for the growth of the technology, both informal market standards as well as international standards, developed by the fledgling International Telegraphic Union (ITU).
IAN…THE PATH TO IEEE STANDARDIZATION FOR TODAY’S INDUSTRY CONSORTIA
The IEEE SA Industry Affiliate Network (IAN) provides a program for bringing together consortia, alliances and other industry communities for rapidly evolving their industry standards or specifications into global IEEE standards.
Once your alliance or collective body is operational, it needs to be cared for and managed. While volunteer participation is necessary for organizational success, it cannot be counted on to ensure your group runs smoothly and effectively.
To maintain industry traction and ecosystem support for your group’s activities, you need constant communication. Messaging the right content to the right audience at the right time is key to your success.
Certification and test programs are fundamental to gain market adoption of your technologies. ISTO has solid experience supporting a variety of certification, interoperability, and conformance test programs.
ISTO offers an array of tools to ensure your organization’s productivity and security. From membership systems to collaborative environments to web development, there’s a tool to facilitate the work at hand.
One of the unique benefits ISTO Federation membership affords today’s industry alliances is our strong synergy with the IEEE, a world leader in standards development and a renowned publisher of leading-edge electrotechnology.
