technical sessions were given at the last meeting of Study Group 5 in
Group 5 is the ITU-T group that looks at protection against electromagnetic
environment effects. Technical sessions are tutorials on a specific subject
that aim to provide background for the preparation of new standards (ITU-T
Recommendations) on these topics.
session was on security, and was presented by William Radasky, Chairman of IEC
SC 77C (high power transient phenomena). Radaskyís lectures dealt with
electromagnetic threats such as high power electromagnetic phenomena and its
effect on systems and mitigation methods. This will help SG5 prepare
recommendations to protect telecommunication systems against malicious
man-made high power transient phenomena. Radasky also detailed IECís work which
will help ITU-T experts avoid duplication of their work.
session was on home networking and was in collaboration with Study Group 9.
The SG 9 contribution was in the areas of architecture, transport technology,
security, quality of service and management of home networks. SG 5ís
contributions were in the areas of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC),
electromagnetic security and electromagnetic emission issues in the home
