Telecommunications and information exchange between systems


ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 6 Scope

Standardization in the field of telecommunications dealing with the exchange of information between open systems including system functions, procedures, parameters, and equipment, as well as the conditions for their use. This standardization includes both the lower layers that support the physical, data link, network, and transport protocol and services, including private integrated services networking, as well as the upper layers that support the application protocols and services such as Directory and ASN.1. A vital aspect of this work is done in effective cooperation with ITU-T and other worldwide and regional standardization bodies e.g. IEEE and IETF.
