Information technology — Telecommunications and information exchange between systems — Local and metropolitan area networks — Part 21-1: Media independent services (Adopted ISO/IEC/IEEE 8802-21-1:2018, first edition, 2018-04)
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).
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 defines several media independent services (MIS);
handover, home energy management system (HEMS), software-defined radio access networks (SDRANs), radio resource management (RRM), and device-to-device (D2D) communication that shall be implemented in conjunction with the MIS framework as defined in IEEE Std 802.21™-2017 to optimize the performance of such services.
