ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 25 Interconnection of information technology equipment

ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 25 Interconnection of information technology equipment was formed in 1989.

The former IEC SC 83: Information technology equipment and ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 13: Interconnection of equipment, were joined to form the current subcommittee, ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 25:. Later the new SC25 also adopted the standardization activity of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 26 into the working group 4

Scope SC 25

the standardization of microprocessor systems; and of interfaces, protocols, architectures, and associated interconnecting media for information technology equipment and networks, generally for commercial and residential environments, to support embedded and distributed computing environments, storage systems, other input/output. Home and building electronic systems including customer premises smart grid applications for electricity, gas, water and heat.

The scope includes:

Requirements for components, assemblies, and subsystems

The development of network interfaces, in liaison with committees for external utility networks, to support smart grid applications at the customer premises.

The scope excludes:

Standardization of cables, waveguides and connectors remains within the relevant product technical committees and subcommittees of IEC.

Working groups

ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 25 is made up of three active working groups and one task group:

ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 25/WG 1            Home electronic systems

ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 25/WG 3            Customer premises cabling

ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 25/WG 4            Interconnection of computer systems and attached equipment

ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 25 PTTT             Project Team: Taxonomy and Terminology , working to coordinate the standardization activities for intelligent homes.
