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 Canadian Advisory Committee (CAC) 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 International Standard was reviewed by the CSA TCIT under the jurisdiction of the Strategic Steering Committee on Information Technology and deemed acceptable for use in Canada. (A committee membership list is available on request from the CSA Project Manager.) From time to time, ISO/IEC may publish addenda, corrigenda, etc. The CSA TCIT will review these documents for approval and publication. For a listing, refer to the CSA Information Products catalogue or CSA Info Update or contact a CSA Sales representative. This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by these Committees and has been approved as a National Standard of Canada by the Standards Council of Canada.
This Recommendation | International Standard defines in an abstract way the externally visible service provided by the
OS1 Session Layer in terms of:
a) the primitive actions and events of the service;
b) the parameter data associated with each primitive action and event;
c) the relationship between, and the valid sequence of these actions and events.
The service defined in this Recommendation | International Standard is that which is provided by the OS1 session protocol (in conjunction with the transport service) and which may be used by the OS1 presentation protocol.
This Recommendation | International Standard does not specify individual implementations or products, nor does it constrain the implementation of entities and interfaces within a computer system. There is, therefore, no conformance to this Recommendation | International Standard.
The text pertaining to the symmetric synchronization functional unit is not applicable to the support of ITU-T applications.
