Outside Plant Technologies ITU-T SG6 and IEC SB4, TC 86 common area

Project description

ITU-T Study Group 6 is responsible for studies relating to outside plant of all types of cables for public telecommunications and associated structures. SG 6 considers very important that experts have a commonly accessible platform for sharing relevant standards documentation at an early stage.

This approach involves people both in IEC and ITU-T, working in the day-to-day development of standards related to cables (copper and optical), their associated hardware and the relevant installation techniques.

With this in mind the ITU-T Secretariat set up an ITU-T/IEC publicly accessible area, hereafter called the ‘Common Area’, within the SG 6 Website, as a platform for the exchange of relevant standards documentation. Experts of SG 6, IEC SB4 and TC 46/86 and SC86A/B/C, that are involved in developing standards for products to be installed in the telecommunication Outside Plant, can subscribe for access. 

This hopefully will assist in meeting the common goal of focusing standards development on specific topics, increasing cooperation between the two Standards Organizations, and as a result, produce market oriented and timely standards aligned across them.

The common area is organized according to the SG6 Structure (10 Questions)

The work will be performed taking into account the existing provisions given by the Resolution 7 (WTSA 2000) , the rules existing in the ITU-T Recommendation A.23 Annex A.

Details on access facilities and rules are given in the Guidelines for participants.
