Standards Bodies Communicate

FREMONT, Calif. -- The Multiservice Switching Forum (MSF) today announced that, in the first communication between the MSF and the ITU-T, the MSF has forwarded a framework document regarding Bearer Independent Call Control (BICC) to the ITU-T that will enhance architectural and protocol consistency across multiservice networks. In addition, the MSF announced that it has elected a new Board of Directors for 2001. The Board of Directors oversees all aspects of the MSF's work, including the Forum's working groups and technical committee.

"The BICC protocol is important in a number of multiservice network deployments, including voice over ATM and wireless networks," said Roger Ward, president of MSF. "We feel that the liaison with ITU-T will lead to a more open and complete specification for the emergent BICC protocol."
