|ITU-T Study Group 7 Area of Responsibility (Study Period 1997-2000)
Responsible for studies relating to:
for studies concerning data communications, data networks
and open system communications
Group 7 is to take the primary role for developing Recommendations in the following areas:
systems interconnection (X.200-,
handling services and systems (F.400-
services and systems (F.500- and X.500-Series);
including frameworks, mechanisms and protocols (X.800-Series);
distributed processing (X.900-Series);
and frame relay, including interworking cases for data communications;
reliable (loss sensitive or assured) U-plane data communications protocols over ATM (e.g.
X.25, X.45 or other OSI protocols over ATM), including interworking.
In addition, Study Group 7 is the Lead
Study Group for:
- open distributed processing (ODP);
- frame relay;
- communication systems security
regard to GII and multimedia, Study Group 7 is responsible for detailed services and
protocols in all of the above listed areas and from the viewpoint of data communications.
Direction on what studies need to be undertaken in support of GII and multimedia will come
from Study Group 13 and Study Group 16, respectively.
With regard to numbering, routing and
routing: Study Group 2 is
responsible for general principles for numbering and routing applicable to all networks.
Study Group 7 is responsible for detailed work on numbering and routing for public data
networks, including Recommendations X.110, X.121, X.122 and X.353.Ongoing work is to take
into account Recommendations on general principles established by Study Group 2.
performance: Study Group 2 is
responsible for general principles applicable to all networks. Study Group 7 is
