The global information and communications technology (ICT) community is gathering through 7 November 2014 at the ITU Plenipotentiary Conference (PP-14), a treaty conference held every four years to elect the officers of the ITU and to assess its working mandate by the Member States. Critical issues in the ICT and Internet ecosystem will be addressed at PP-14, such as ensuring equitable communications across all markets globally, establishing trust in cyberspace, managing radio frequencies and the role standardization and the ITU. The IEEE-SA, as a leading developer of global, open technical standards, is following the dialogue and is participating in the conversation, and we would like to gather your thoughts and insights to bring your voice into the discussion. What do you think?
How can open standards play a role in helping enable and sustain an Internet environment for continued innovation and growth, while successfully addressing privacy and security concerns and contributing to a culture of trust?
