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 part of ISO/IEC 14543-5 specifies the core protocol of IGRS user and device remote access, including intelligent grouping and resource sharing. The protocol features are:
a) IGRS RA user and IGRS RA device concepts and relationship management mechanisms
b) user and device remote discovery and online and offline status management mechanisms
c) user and device remote access message formats and message exchanging flows, and
d) remote data and service distribution and sharing mechanisms.
This document is applicable to remote access of an IGRS sub-network (called an IGRS subnet) for resource sharing and service collaboration among home and/or remote computers, consumer electronics and communication devices.
