INTERCONNECTION OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY EQUIPMENT
TIA is proud to host the 29th meeting of the International Standards Subcommittee ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 25. This meeting includes the annual Plenary Meeting of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 25 as well as meetings of its three working groups: Working Group 1 for Home Electronic Systems, Working Group 3 for Customer Premises Cabling and Working Group 4 for Interconnection of Computer Systems and Attached Equipment.
The goals of Working Group 1’s meetings are to continue working on energy management in complex areas such as campus buildings and to ensure cybersecurity for connected devices in homes and buildings all with the goal of protecting privacy, safety and data security.
Working Group 1 meetings will have discussions related to Home Electronic System (HES) architecture. More specifically, guidelines for product interoperability, gateways, application services such as model of energy management system and GridWise interoperability, HES lower layer services and protocols, HES web of things. The group will also review liaison reports from both ISO and IEC Committees.
From these discussions, the working group will make recommendations to SC 25 on how to expand their outreach and promotion activities. They will also review resolutions, action item assignments, deliverables and schedule the next meeting in Tokyo, Japan.
The goals of Working Group 2’s meetings are to review and makes recommendations on amendments to parts 1-6 of ISO/IEC 11801. The six major parts are:
- Generic cabling requirements for twisted-pair and optical fiber cables.
- Cabling for commercial premises.
- Cabling for industrial premises.
- Cabling for homes.
- Cabling for high-performance networks used by data centers.
- Cabling for intelligent buildings including new cabling structures for building automation.
Working Group 2 will work to ensure that cabling structures are being updated to provide more capacity for wired and wireless communications infrastructure and that new cabling structures support new network capacity and applications to support new IoT connectivity. The group also intends to intensify work on projects that will support emerging technologies in hyperscale and edge computing.
Working Group 4 will discuss and provide recommendations to SC 25 on microprocessors systems, interfaces, protocols and associated interconnecting media for information technology equipment and networks.
ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 25 covers standardization of microprocessor systems; and of interfaces, protocols, architectures and associated interconnecting media for information technology equipment and networks, generally for commercial and residential environments, to support embedded and distributed computing environments, storage systems, other input/output components, home and building electronic systems including customer premises smart grid applications for electricity, gas, water and heat.
