  • Background and History

    The IEEE Computer Society has a variety of technical committees spanning a wide range of technical areas. While some of these TC have areas which involve networking such as the TC on Distributed Processing or TC on Computer Communications none squarely focus on internetworking. The IEEE Communications Society has a formal Technical Committee on Internetworking. That TC is fairly low-level, with interests in networking protocols more than applications.

    Therefore, in November 1997, the IEEE-CS Technical Activities Board approved a new Task Force on Internetworking. After successfully carrying out the goal of the Task Force, in 1998 it has become a full-fledged Technical Committee within IEEE-CS.

    The IEEE Computer Society in involved with standards. Technical committees provide help in that effort, and interact with other standards bodies such as the W3C and IETF
