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).
Based on the IEEE 1888™ protocols, this standard describes network gateway central access control and management policy through the extension of existing interface protocols, message formats, and interactive processing in ubiquitous green community control networks (UGCCNets). This Standard extends the definition of the original interface protocols and message formats and mainly specifies the network gateway signal flow for access control, registration management, state querying, event reporting, remote management, etc.
This Standard aims to provide open and standardized network gateway management interface protocols for service providers, system integrators, equipment manufacturers, etc., through the extension of the original interface protocol in order to be able to remotely control and monitor the network gateway and other facilities in green communities, such as heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC); lighting systems; energy equipment; and so on.
