- RIPE NCC Supplies Feedback to ITU Study Group on Internet of Things
Following a liaison statement that the RIPE NCC received on behalf of Study Group 20 of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), we recently supplied our feedback to the group. The Study Group is set to study the "IoT and its applications, including smart cities and communities (SC&C)". The RIPE NCC was invited to participate because the group is working to develop recommendations that relate to IPv6. A similar liaison statement was received by our colleagues at the other RIRs. As a Sector Member of the ITU, the RIPE NCC has attended the previous meetings of Study Group 20 and will continue to follow the development of these recommendations closely.
