Codes & Standards - Purchase
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).
At the time of publication, ISO/IEC 14543-5-1:2010 is available from ISO and IEC in English only. CSA will publish the French version when it becomes available from ISO and IEC.
This part of the ISO/IEC 14543 specifies the services and protocol of the application layer for use by IGRS Devices in the Home Electronic System. An IGRS Device (Intelligent Grouping and Resource Sharing Device) includes the communications protocol specified in the multiple parts of ISO/IEC 14543-5. The objective of this standard is to enable resource sharing and service collaboration among devices. This Standard describes:
the interoperability mechanism;
the process and messaging format of device discovery and device grouping;
the process and messaging format of resource sharing among IGRS Devices;
IGRS Device and service description requirements.
This Standard is applicable to resource sharing and service collaboration among computers, consumer electronics, and communication devices in a Local Area Network (LAN) or Personal Area Network (PAN) environment, especially in a wireless dynamic network.
