It is said that to limit global temperature rise to 2°C, emissions need to be capped at approximately 44 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent by 2020. However emission are likely to hit 53 gigatonnes by 2020. The ITU says that ICT and broadband-enabled applications could limit the total to just 45.2 gigatonnes by 2020.

ITU progresses cloud interoperability

The International Telecommunication Union's Telecoms sector (ITU-T) Study Group 13 (SG 13) has created a new working party on cloud computing.

Published in Cloud Computing

For years cellular mobile and WiMAX network operators along with their network and device suppliers have been touting their wireless broadband offerings as 4G, but the International Telecommunication Union has only just finalised the 4G standards.

A handful of the world's major standards development organisations - ARIB, ATIS, CCSA, ETSI, TIA, TTA and TTC - have announced plans to form a global initiative for m2m standardisation.

4G 'confusion' survey is confused itself

Confusion over what is what is not a 4G mobile technology has reached ludicrous heights. A survey by Retrovo Gadgetoloy, the market research arm of US online electronics retailer Retrovo, has concluded that "consumers may be so confused over 4G that they become hesitant to move to 4G, at least in the near term," but it can't make the distinction itself.

Proponents of the G.hn home networking standard have hailed the success of the latest multi-vendor interoperability event as evidence that the technology is now on the cusp of commercial availability.

The head of the ITU has stated categorically that every vendor and operator using the term '4G' for current wireless technologies is in error.

The Broadband Commission for Digital Development, set up by the International Telecommunication Union and UNESCO, has produced a second report emphasising the essential role for broadband in recommending strategies governments should adopt to ensure adequate broadband infrastructure.

IEEE standardises '4G' version of mobile WiMAX

The IEEE has approved the next iteration of mobile WiMAX as IEEE802.16m, the first true 4G version of mobile WiMAX.

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) says that broadband access is no longer a luxury but a necessity that will be crucial to every country's economic, social and political growth, and it says there is also the need for proactive national broadband planning by every government.

ITU aims to protect kids online - with standards

In the latest phase of its two year old Child Online Protection Initiative the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is to look at the possibility of developing international telecommunications standards whose widespread application would help protect children from online threats.

Published in Technology Regulation

The Internet Engineering Taskforce (IETF) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) have decided to go their separate ways in the development of standards for multiprotocol label switching (MPLS): a move that the IETF warns could jeopardise the future interoperability of the Internet.
