Telecommunications and exchange between information technology systems — Requirements for local and metropolitan area networks — Part 1Q: Bridges and bridged networks (Adopted ISO/IEC/IEEE 8802-1Q:2020, second edition, 2020-08)
Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
For brevity, this Standard will be referred to as CSA ISO/IEC/IEEE 8802-1Q throughout.
This Standard supersedes CAN/CSA-ISO/IEC/IEEE 8802-1Q:18 (adopted ISO/IEC/IEEE 8802-1Q:2016). At the time of publication, ISO/IEC/IEEE 8802-1Q:2020 is available from ISO and IEC in English only. CSA Group will publish the French version when it becomes available from ISO and IEC.
This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This standard specifies Bridges that interconnect individual LANs, each supporting the IEEE 802 MAC Service using a different or identical media access control method, to provide Bridged Networks and VLANs.
