RSS (Really Simple Syndication)


  RSS Explained
ITU-T now uses a system called RSS to separate its news and other useful information into channels according to topic. So for example if you are interested in next generation networks (NGN) you can see just news on this topic by following the link to that its news channel. Another advantage of RSS is that these news channels can be read by software known as readers. Using an RSS reader allows users to subscribe to news feeds from any number of sources. So for example you can subscribe to world news from the BBC, business news from the New York Times, ICT standardization news from ITU-T and technology news from the Register and read it all in one application as soon as it is published, without having to remember to visit each site every day. It takes the hassle out of staying up-to-date, by showing you the very latest information that you are interested in.

You can normally tell if a site has an RSS feed if you see the RSS or an XML icon . If you click on the button you can drag the URL of the RSS feed into your news reader or cut and paste the same URL into a new feed in your news reader.

Some browsers, including Firefox, Opera and Safari, automatically check for RSS feeds when you visit a website, and display an icon when they find one.
