Standards Research Student’s name Professor’s name Course title Date Audio/Video Transport Core Maintenance (AVTCORE) Audio/Video Transport Core Maintenance (AVTCORE) is one of the chartered working groups in Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). The working group performs several roles as outlined in its charter. Majorly it is mandated to maintain core specifications of Real-time Transport Protocol/Real-time Transport Control Protocol (RTP/RTCP) (Internet Engineering Task Force 2017). RTCP is meant to give out-of-band statistics as well as other information for control during RTP sessions. RTP is quite useful especially in telephone communication and radio and television broadcasting over a multicast or unicast transports. In 2016 the group drafted multi-stream optimisation guidelines applicable in sending several RTP streams through one RTP session while in 2015; the team formulated guidance on sending multiple media via a single RTP session (Internet Engineering Task Force 2017). Another function of the AVTCORE working group is to maintain states. This is because varied geographical locations need a different set of equipment to ensure better communication. Also developing a federal standards organization gives the international team an opportunity to reach the various commercial groups in a natural way (The White House 2017). Such a group would also be used to sensitize the public about the multiple standards that have to be adhered to for purposes of ensuring better living environment.

• The following Website may be used for reference to complete this assignment. The Website represents an electronic document titled “Standards Organizations” written by William Stallings (2009), located at www.box.net Write a three to four (3-4) page paper in which you: 1. Select one (1) of the working groups in the IETF or IEEE and briefly summarize what this group is working on. 2. Justify the need of the IEEE 802 standard used in networking. 3. Evaluate the three (3) standard organizations including IEEE, ISO, and ANSI to determine the most important for communication technology. 4. Take a position on the need for a federal standards agency such as NIST. Include supporting evidence to justify your opinion. 5. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources. Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements: • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format.
