Meshed tree bridging protocol (MTBP) ensures that bridged network constituents receive high reliability in frame delivery in the event of link or bridge failures. MTBP is based on the meshed tree algorithm (MTA) that allows for simultaneous construction and maintenance of multiple trees or tree branches from a single root. In the event of tree branch failures due to link or bridge failures, another preconstructed and maintained branch exists as an immediate fallback. Recovery and tree pruning times in meshed tree bridging is minimal. Multiple roots should be preassigned to construct multiple distinguishable meshed trees from each root. In the…
State-of-the-art authentication and authorization mechanisms for networks, especially for IoT and access devices, are integrated in this amendment. Specifications for how IEEE Std 802.1X may be utilized for authentication and authorization by IEEE 1901 networks are provided in this amendment.
Control mechanisms and management methods necessary to enable creation and operation of virtual links in Ethernet-based subscriber access networks are described. The key characteristics of the Virtual Link Control (VLC) mechanisms are: - The ability to transit Layer 2 bridges in a single IEEE 802 Media Access Control (MAC) domain to allow remote device management - Extensibility to accommodate new protocols and new types of devices - The ability to simultaneously send messages to multiple VLC-aware stations using broadcast or multicast addressing The message format, as well as processing operations at the stations participating in the VLC protocol, are described.
Within the context of the ISO/IEEE 11073 family of standards for point-of-care medical device communication, an abstract, object-oriented domain information model that specifies the structure of exchanged information, as well as the vents and services that are supported by each type of object, is provided in this standard. All data structure elements are specified using abstract syntax (ASN.1) and may be applied to many different implementation technologies, transfer syntaxes, and application service models. Core subjects include medical, alert, system, patient, control, archival, communication, and extended services. Model extensibility is supported, and a conformance model and statement template is provided.
The performance, test requirements, procedures, and acceptance criteria for a transmission line overhead ground wire (a.k.a. shield wire, static wire, earth wire, skywire) with optical fibers commonly known as optical ground wire (OPGW) are covered in this standard. Functional requirements such as electrical, mechanical, optical fiber, environmental, and packaging, and test requirements related to design, installation, in-service, and maintenance, including routine tests are also covered.
Common denominators for subscriber line performance, independent of facility types, construction processes or equipment, and circuit provisioning methods are provided in this standard.
Rules for the near real-time calculation of pollutant emissions allocated to the use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) infrastructure (servers, network, etc.) are specified in this standard. Emissions in this standard are defined as gaseous and particle emissions caused by the generation of electricity consumed during the ICT infrastructure use phase.
A set of high-efficiency video coding tools, including intra prediction, inter prediction, transform, entropy coding and loop filter, and corresponding decoding procedure, is defined in this standard. The target applications and services include, but are not limited to, digital television broadcasting, IPTV, video surveillance, video conference, Internet video streaming, and other video/audio-enabled services and applications such as user-generated multimedia content, digital storage media, and communication.
The Standard for Biometric Privacy (SBP) provides private identity assertion. SBP supersedes the prior IEEE Std 2410(TM)-2019 by including a formal specification for privacy and biometrics such that a conforming SBP system does not incur GDPR, CCPA, BIPA or HIPAA privacy obligations. Homomorphic encryption ensures the biometric payload is always one-way encrypted with no need for key management and provides full privacy by ensuring plaintext biometrics are never received by the SBP server. The SBP implementation includes software running on a client device and on the SPB server. Pluggable components are used to replace legacy functionality to allow rapid integration…
