The International Telecommunication Union's Telecoms sector (ITU-T) Study Group 13 (SG 13) has created a new working party on 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.
The International Telecommunication Union's (ITU) Telecommunication Standardisation Advisory Group (TSAG) has set up a joint coordination activity on cloud computing to create a cloud computing ecosystem where interoperability facilitates secure information exchange across platforms.
Communications Alliance is planning to develop guidelines for the end-to-end performance of Internet Protocol networks, such as the NBN.
The International Telecommunication Union's Telecomms Standardisation Sector (ITU-T) says the proprietary nature of current digital signage systems is restricting the integration of applications across different networks and vendors.
The UN's Broadband Commission for Digital Development has set new targets for broadband policy, affordability and uptake that it says countries around the world should strive for in order to ensure their populations fully participate in tomorrow's emerging knowledge societies.
The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has turned its attention to the video game industry and is predicting the emergence of a 'one box' solution that "will integrate audio and video streaming, gaming and other entertainment features, natural user interfaces and secure payment mechanisms."
According to the ITU almost 100 'economies' now have mobile penetration above 100 percent of the population, and in a handful it is approaching 200 percent
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.
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.
The ITU has fired a second salvo in its war of words against the IETF over their split on standards for operation and management of MPLS networks, laying the blame squarely on the IETF.
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.
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.
The International Telecommunication Union has called for access to broadband networks to be a basic civil right and has challenged the world's leaders to ensure that more than half of all the world's people have access to broadband networks by 2015.
