Select (1) of the working groups in the IETF or IEEE and brief summarize what this group is working on.
Justify the need of the IEEE 802 standard used in networking.
Evaluate the (3) standard organizations including IEEE, ISO, and ANSI to determine the most important for communication technology.
Take a position on the need for a federal regulating body of standards such as NIST. Include supporting evidence to justify your opinion.
Working group 802.22
In short, Working Groups work to create and write the standard. Working Groups are open to anyone to participate in. For individual standards projects, IEEE or IEEE-SA…show more content…

Need for the IEEE 802 standard
While connecting computers through networks, we need to have set of rules or standards for the data to travel from one computer to other computers. A very good example of this would be the rules of the road when driving a car. It is understood why we need traffic rules while driving; in same sense for data packets to travel from one computer terminal to other terminals, they should also follow set of rules and regulations. The standards of IEEE 802 help the industry provide advantages such as, interoperability, low product cost, and easy to manage standards. (EEHerald, 2012)
As the voice of the U.S. standards and conformity assessment system, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) empowers its members and constituents to strengthen the U.S. marketplace position in the global economy while helping to assure the safety and health of consumers and the protection of the environment. The Institute oversees the creation and use of thousands of guidelines that directly impact businesses in nearly every sector: from acoustical devices to construction equipment, from dairy and livestock production to energy distribution, and many more. ANSI is also actively engaged in accrediting programs that assess conformance to standards – including globally-recognized cross-sector programs
