  • What it is
  • A financially self-supporting, complementary
    standards forum in which consortium-like
    standards development activity can be organized.
  • Flexible, innovative, alternative development
    processes and procedures.
  • A forum not only to develop standards, but also
    to facilitate the activities that support
    implementation and acceptance of standards in the
  • Extends the scope of standards activities the
    IEEE is able to support.
  • A recognition and response to the
    changes in the standards environment.
