The Packet Technologies and Systems Committee (PTSC)
PTSC develops and recommends standards and technical reports related to services, architectures, and signaling, in addition to related subjects under consideration in other North American and international standards bodies.
The Packet Technologies and Systems Committee:
- Coordinates and develops standards and technical reports relevant to telecommunications networks in the U.S.
- Reviews and prepares contributions on such matters for submission to U.S. ITU-T and U.S. ITU-R Study Groups or other standards organizations.
- Reviews for acceptability or per contra the positions of other countries in related standards development and takes or recommends appropriate actions.
The LAES subcommittee is re-organizing the Voice over Packet Technologies in Wireline Telecommunications Networks standard to streamline to supplements for Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and H.323, which defines protocols to provide audio-visual communication session on packet networks. For more information about LAES work, please contact us.
The Signaling, Architecture, and Control (SAC) subcommittee is working to map industry standards to enable the deployment of Emergency Telecommunications Service (ETS) within Next Generation Networks (NGNs). This project will guide progress of ETS through the implementation and deployment of the standards and anticipated technology updates.
