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 International Standard specifies the requirements and recommendations for the attributes of automated infrastructure management (AIM) systems.
This International Standard explains how AIM systems can contribute to operational efficiency and deliver benefits to
a) cabling infrastructure and connected device administration
b) facilities and IT management processes and systems
c) other networked management processes and systems (e.g. intelligent building systems)
d) business information systems covering asset tracking and asset management together with event notifications and alerts that assist with physical network security.
This International Standard specifies a framework of requirements and recommendations for data exchange with other systems.
