ITU-T Study Group 15 (SG15) is responsible for the development of standards for the optical transport network, access network, home network and power utility network infrastructures, systems, equipment, optical fibres and cables. This includes related installation, maintenance, management, test, instrumentation and measurement techniques, and control plane technologies to enable the evolution toward intelligent transport networks, including the support of smart-grid applications.
SG15 meets several times a year. During these meetings, new standards or changes to existing standards are discussed and, when approved, the new or modified standard is then published.
Tim Frost (Calnex Strategic Technology Manager) is an editor in SG15. After each meeting, Tim produces a summary of progress made during the meeting. The most recent updates are listed below:
