Global Standards Collaboration (GSC) 14 IEEE Overview & Update Dr. W. Charlton Adams President IEEE Standards Association Executive Summary
IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional society, with over 376,000 members in over 160 countries, grouped into geographic and technical areas reflecting where members live and work. There are 44 technical societies and councils which represent the wide range of technical interests in the IEEE.
IEEE holds more than 900 international conferences annually and publishes over 30% of the world’s literature in its fields. There are more than 1.7 million documents in the IEEE/IET Electronic Library, including more than 900 active industry standards and nearly 1,300 standards and projects under development.
IEEE has been developing standards for 115+ years. IEEE standards reflect the standardization principles as stated by the WTO, and the IEEE-SA has a leading contemporary intellectual property policy. It encourages its membership to participate in standardization activities, for the benefit of their industries and the public good. IEEE’s technical professionals work in a global marketplace where national boundaries are often a secondary issue. In fields where IEEE work has already been done, it encourages international and regional standards bodies to consider using IEEE standards as the source of technical information.
It has been a long standing IEEE policy to harmonize work with other SDOs when possible to eliminate duplication of effort and speed the development of international standards. A review of the high-interest areas of GSC-14 indicates a large amount (80%) of common areas with IEEE.
The following slides provide detail.
IEEE-SA approved the industry's first standard for Broadband Over Power Lines: IEEE 1675™, IEEE Standard for Broadband Over Powerline Hardware. Provides testing and verification standards for the commonly used hardware, primarily couplers, for BPL installations, and provides suggested installation methods to supplement a utility's or contractor's installation procedures.
IEEE Std 1650™-2005, IEEE Standard Test Methods for Measurement of Electrical Properties of Carbon Nanotubes approved for adoption as an IEC/IEEE Dual Logo Document (IEC 62624).
World's first motor vehicle “black box” data security standard begun at IEEE; Intended to enhance both highway safety and consumer protection. New work has begun on IEEE P1616a™ in order to help prevent data tampering, VIN theft, and odometer fraud.
IEEE Approved Seven New Health Informatics Standards. The standards have been created within the context of the ISO/IEEE 11073 family of standards addressing the interoperability of medical devices. These new standards will help guide the manufacturers of health-care devices in creating equipment for the secure creation and transmission of electronic health-care information.
802.16m - IEEE submitted a candidate radio interface technology that meets the enhanced technical requirements of the ITU-R IMT-Advanced project based on IEEE Project 802.16m™, the “Advanced Air Interface” specification.
802.20 - IEEE Approves Standard for Vehicular Broadband Wireless Access. IEEE 802.20 Sets Data Rates Above 1 Mbps for Mobile Users at Vehicular Speeds to 250 km/hr.
802.3ba - 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s Ethernet Project Reaches Milestone Vote. New project that will extend the existing IEEE Std 802.3™ Ethernet standard to operating speeds of 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s in order to provide a significant increase in bandwidth.
802.1Qay - IEEE 802.1Qay (PBB-TE) Standard Enters Final Phase of Ratification. Technical agreement has been reached on the industry’s first connection-oriented technology for next generation service provider networks.
