In 2006, ITU-T will celebrate 50 years of making the standards that have played a massive part in shaping the Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) and services of today.

Formerly known as the CCITT (International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee), the body was established in 1956 and renamed as ITU-T in 1993. In that time ITU’s standards work has substantially shaped the way that we live and do business.

Telecommunication plays an enormous role in our day-to-day lives, and if it wasn’t for ITU-T Recommendations making a simple telephone call would be impossible. Don’t underestimate what that would mean. Without telecommunication business would grind to a halt, banks would not be able to transfer money, orders could not be placed and air traffic control systems would fail. Telecommunication also has a vital role to play in emergency communications and disaster relief and has been a crucial tool in international diplomacy. Simply put, life without telephony is almost unimaginable. And as we have moved from fixed-line telephony into mobile telephony and the Internet, so has ITU’s work moved to accommodate and underpin these technologies that are becoming equally as important to the world economy.

In order to mark this momentous milestone, ITU-T will hold a one-day ceremony mid July 2006.

The event, while celebrating the past achievements of ITU-T, will be forward looking in focus. A main feature of the day will be a panel discussion on the future of ICTs moderated by a key industry pundit. The panel will consist of CTOs and other senior level people from some of the world’s major ICT companies. In addition CEOs from some of the world’s biggest ICT players will be invited to give keynote speeches.

More on ITU-T here. A webpage with more details on the July event and charting ITU-T’s history is under development, please contact for more information.

Help Us Build a Historic Record 

Pertaining to the celebration of 50 years of ITU-T, a project has been initiated to collect information – anecdotes, photography, documents – that will help us chart the main achievements and history of CCITT/ITU-T.
