Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)

The Internet Engineering Task Force is a loosely self-organized group of people who contribute to the engineering and evolution of Internet technologies. It is the principal body engaged in the development of new Internet standard specifications.The IETF is a large open international community of network designers, operators, vendors, and researchers concerned with the evolution of the Internet architecture and the smooth operation of the Internet.It is an open standards organization, with no formal membership or membership requirements. That means it is open to any interested individual.

A visit to the site make you more interesting......

There are several work grops that we can work with.Those who are interested in real time application and infastructure group may find interesting. In that section Audio/Video Transport (avt) work group is a sub division that I am keen on.The Audio/Video Transport Working Group was formed to specify a protocol for real-time transmission of audio and video over unicast and multicast UDP/IP.Work groups are open to all who want to participate, has discussions on an open mailing list, and may hold meetings at IETF meetings.
