As ANSI’s United States Technical Advisory Group Leader, the International Committee on Information Technology Standards manages public consultations originating from the Geneva partner organizations that coordinate national standards organizations such as ANSI. The IEC develops its consensus titles in relatively smaller parcels which means that public review can be released in batches of 10 to 100 at a time. We see the same tsunami-like releases coming from ISO subcommittees.  Hard to keep up with but we try; giving priority to titles incorporated by reference into codes, standards and regulations at the state and federal level.   Meaningful information affecting #TotalCostofOwnership of education communities are typically buried deep, deep into best practice literature.

By comparison, most US-based standards setting organizations bundle best practice concepts into chapters and books.   The books are big but they move more slowly and, arguably, have been superceded within weeks; a discussion for another colloquium.

A broad overview of INCITS information and communication standards setting is linked below:

Note that the titles are product titles (not interoperability) titles.  We generally devote resources to interoperability titles for reasons we explain in our ABOUT.

We collaborate closely with the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, the world’s largest professional organization for the world’s most transformative technologies.  Every 12 hours our algorithm picks up commenting opportunities relevant to the business side of the education industry and redirects them to the subject matter experts in the IEEE Education & Healthcare Facilities Committee which meets 4 times monthly in European and American time zones.

This much said, we always encourage direct participation in INCITS standards setting activity and in its administrative role as the US TAG to ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1.   CLICK HERE to get started on your own.

The INCITS suite is included on the syllabus of our Infotech and Global See our CALENDAR for the next online meeting; open to everyone.

Big Data Applications in Edge-Cloud Systems

Improving Big Data Application Performance in Edge-Cloud Systems

Dávid Haja – Balázs Vass – László Toka

Abstract:  Data analysis is widely used in all domains of the economy. While the amount of data to process grows, the time criteria and the resource consumption constraints get stricter. These phenomena call for advanced resource orchestration for the big data applications. The challenge is actually even greater at the advent of edge computing: orchestration of big data resources in a hybrid edge-cloud infrastructure is challenging. The difficulty stems from the fact that wide-area networking and all its well-known issues come into play and affect the performance of the application. In this paper we present the steps we made towards network-aware big data application design over such distributed systems. We propose a HDFS block placement algorithm for the network reliability problem we identify in geographically distributed topologies. The heuristic algorithm we propose provides better big data application performance compared to the default block placement method. We implement our solution in our simulation environment and show the improved quality of big data applications.

Outside & Inside ICT Environment

The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) is an ANSI accredited standards development organization that develops technical and operational standards and solutions for the ICT industry.    The home page for its standards development enterprise is linked below:

ATIS Public Groups Page

Two of its consensus products have entered a revision cycle:

ATIS 0600010 Temperature, Humidity, and Altitude Requirements for Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Equipment Utilized in Controlled Environmental Spaces

Scope:  This standard covers the minimum temperature, humidity, and altitude criteria for wireline and wireless telecommunications network equipment to be installed and utilized by service providers in controlled environmental spaces (e.g., Carrier Communication Spaces, Central Offices, MTSOs, Huts, CEVs, and customer premises). It describes test methodologies and test report criteria necessary for proper evaluation by interested parties, and those intending to deploy equipment in such environments (also called Class 1 environments).

This standard defines temperature and humidity ranges in which the equipment must operate, and provides test methodologies to evaluate equipment operation in those environments. The expectation is that equipment will continue to function properly and without degradation of performance when placed in these environments.

This standard covers the minimum temperature, humidity, and altitude criteria for telecommunications network equipment to be installed and utilized by service providers in controlled environmental spaces (e.g., Carrier Communication Spaces, COs, MTSOs, Huts, CEVs, and customer premises). It describes test methodologies and test report criteria necessary for proper evaluation by interested parties, and those intending to deploy equipment in such environments. The expectation is that equipment will continue to function properly and without any unexpected degradation of performance when placed in the temperature and humidity controlled environmental spaces defined in the standard. Equipment is also expected to function properly after exposure to other environmental stresses, such as experienced in high-altitude applications and during storage and transportation.

ATIS 0600010.01 Temperature, Humidity, Altitude, and Salt Fog Requirements for Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Equipment Utilized in Outside Plant Environments

Scope. This standard covers the minimum temperature, humidity, altitude, and salt fog criteria for telecommunications network equipment to be installed and utilized by service providers in Outside Plant (OSP) environments. These environments include those found in OSP cabinets, enclosures, pedestals, etc., as well as those outside of protective enclosures. Test methodologies and test report criteria necessary for proper evaluation by interested parties and those intending to deploy equipment in such environments are also provided.

 This document defines Environmental Classifications based on the temperature, humidity, altitude, and salt fog ranges in which the equipment must operate, and provides test methodologies to evaluate equipment operation in those environments. Based on the intended usage, network equipment could be placed in one or more of the “Environment Classifications”.

 The expectation is that equipment will continue to function properly and without any unexpected degradation of performance when placed in these environments. Regardless of the operational environmental classification, equipment is expected to function properly after exposure to other environmental stresses, such as operational altitude and storage/transportation temperature-humidity. The test criteria defined in this document apply to all equipment.

Public consultation closes January 6th.  In both cases, you may obtain an electronic copy from Drew Greco (dgreco@atis.org).  Send comments to Drew (with optional copy to psa@ansi.org)

We keep all ATIS titles on the standing agenda of our Infotech colloquia.  We collaborate with the IEEE Education & Healthcare Facilities Committee.  See our CALENDAR for the next online meeting.
