Internet & Datacommunications

ACM SIGCOMM
SIGCOMM is ACM's professional forum for the discussion of topics in the field of communcations and computer networks, including technical design and engineering, regulation and operations, and the social implications of computer networking. The SIG's members are particularly interested in the systems engineering and architectural questions of communication.
  Enterprise Computer Telephony Forum (ECTF)
The ECTF is an open, non-profit, mutually beneficial corporation formed to provide the leadership and direction necessary to promote an open systems environment for Computer Telephony. The ECTF operates as a consensus forum led by its members. Membership is available to any and all CT vendors, developers, VARs, end-users and other interested parties.

The ECTF mission is to provide an open, democratic organization to promote the acceptance and implementation of Enterprise Computer Telephony based on de facto and de jure standards that will promote industry-wide Interoperability. The ECTF's primary goal is to promote CT interoperability through the publication of Interoperability Agreements that can be freely used by any company that provides or uses CT hardware or software products. The free availability of these Interoperability Agreements provides the basis for developing fully interoperable products by ECTF members and non-members alike.

Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN)
ICANN is a non-profit, private sector corporation formed by a broad coalition of the Internet's business, technical, academic, and user communities. ICANN has been recognized by the U.S. Government as the global consensus entity to coordinate the technical management of the Internet's domain name system, the allocation of IP address space, the assignment of protocol parameters, and the management of the root server system previously performed under U.S. Government contract by IANA and other entities.. ICANN is dedicated to preserve the operational stability of the Internet; to promote competition; to achieve broad representation of the global Internet community; and to coordinate policy through private-sector, bottom-up, consensus-based means. ICANN's mandate is not to "run the Internet." Rather, it is to coordinate the management of only those specific technical, managerial and policy development tasks that require central coordination -- the assignment of globally unique names, addresses, and protocol parameters.
Internet Research Task Force (IRTF)
IRTF promotes research of importance to the evolution of the future Internet by creating focused, long-term and small Research Groups working on topics related to Internet protocols, applications, architecture and technology. These Research Groups are usually focussed and long term, and are expected to have the stable long term membership needed to promote the development of research collaboration and teamwork in exploring research issues. Participation is by individual contributors, rather than by representatives of organizations.
Internet Society (ISOC)
ISOC is a professional membership society with more than 150 organizational and 6,000 individual members in over 100 countries. It provides leadership in addressing issues that confront the future of the Internet, and is the organization home for the groups responsible for Internet infrastructure standards, including the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and the Internet Architecture Board (IAB). The Society's individual and organizational members are bound by a common stake in maintaining the viability and global scaling of the Internet. They comprise the companies, government agencies, and foundations that have created the Internet and its technologies as well as innovative new entrepreneurial organizations contributing to maintain that dynamic.
IPv6 Forum
A world-wide consortium of leading Internet vendors, research & education networks shape the IPv6 Forum, promoting IPv6 by dramatically improving market and user awareness of IPv6, creating a quality and secure Next Generation Internet and allowing world-wide equitable access to knowledge and technology. The IPv6 Forum is establishing an open, international forum of IPv6 expertise, sharing IPv6 knowledge and experience among members, promoting new IPv6-based applications and global solutions, promoting interoperable implementations of IPv6 standards, co-operating to achieve end-to-end quality of service, and resolving issues that create barriers to IPv6 deployment.
IP Multicast Initiative (IPMI)
The IPMI is a world-wide, multi-vendor forum accelerating the adoption of IP Multicast (an IETF standard). Through education and marketing, the IPMI is stimulating demand of IP Multicast products and related services. More than fifty companies now participate in this Forum.

Our goal is to be the comprehensive resource and center of information regarding IP Multicast. We strive to be a trusted provider of timely, accurate and in-depth information on the standards and the marketplace. The IPMI provides this information service on behalf of our members to accelerate the demand for products and services and on behalf of consumers to assist them with their purchasing decisions.

IPMI members are an influential group of networking software and hardware vendors, satellite vendors, network service and content providers. Members of the Initiative help guide the activities of IPMI through quarterly meetings participation in working groups and special projects and email communication.
