ETSI Firms Up on Grid Standards


The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) has announced the creation of a new technical committee (TC), GRID, to produce interoperability standards, contributing to the global progress of Grid.

The ETSI Board approved the move at its recent meeting at Sophia Antipolis, France. TC GRID will be responsible for ETSI’s contribution to information technology and telecommunications convergence standards in the Grid domain and the work will start with writing of test specifications and progress toward a broader range of Grid standards to integrate the use of telecommunications infrastructures in networked computing.
