Therefore, the study group collaborated to determine which security capabilities specified in Recommendation ITU-T
Y.4401/Y.2068 "Functional framework and capabilities of the Internet of things" support safe execution of IoT.
In terms of the architectural framework of the IoT, the ITU-T
's study groups and focus groups such as SG13, SG16, JCA-IoT, and IoT-GSI  provided the concept and the architectural reference model  of the IoT.
G.693 is therefore expected to become effective before the end of the year if the comment period yields a positive outcome.
Recommendation G.709 specifies the interfaces for interconnection between service providers/network operators and facilitates mid-span meet between equipment from different vendors.
According to the ITU, this standard and others are major steps forward for the ITU-T
in moving telecommunications networks toward integration with the Internet and other IP-based networks, to improve global opportunities for integrated voice, data, image, and video communication.
Twenty-one documents covering IPTV requirements, architecture, quality of service (QoS), security, digital rights management (DRM), unicast and multicast, protocols, metadata, middleware and home networks will be submitted to the ITU-T
Study Group charged with progressing and distributing the work.
Recommendation G.964 (0312001)--V-Interfaces at the Digital Local Exchange (LE)--V5.1--Interface (based on 2048 kbit/s) for the support of Access Network (AN)
We are particularly pleased by the result of this cooperation which has produced ITU-T
L.1330 and the technically equivalent ETSI ES 203 228."
Recommendation for VDSL2, very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line 2, will reportedly allow telecomms operators to offer triple-play video, Internet and voice services at speeds up to ten times faster than standard ADSL.
