The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has launched projects to create Standards for Local Area Networks (LANs) and C++ language interfaces.
The IEEE P1733 Standard for Layer 3 Transport Protocol for Time Sensitive Applications in Local Area Networks will facilitate interoperability between stations that stream time-sensitive audio and/or video across bridged and routed LANs; thus providing time synchronization and latency/bandwidth services by defining the packet format and stream setup, control, synchronization and teardown protocols by leveraging Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) family of protocols and IEEE 802.1 AVB protocols.
The IEEE P1003.27 Standard for Information Technology--POSIX C++ Language Interfaces--Binding for System Application Program Interface (API) will provide a single, recommended method to allow portable C++ applications to make use of the POSIX Standard interfaces, which will help to discourage the currently diverging practices in the industry that lead to poor design choices, inefficiencies, and incompatibilities.
The IEEE Standards Association is a globally recognized Standards-setting body that develops consensus through an open process bringing diverse parts of industry together. These Standards set specifications and procedures based on current scientific and technological consensus. The IEEE-SA has a portfolio of over 870 active Standards and more than 400 Standards under development If you are interested in participating in Standards development, go to the IEEE-SA Standards Development webpage for more information.
