i2CAT promotes the standardization of the Recursive InterNetwork Architecture (RINA)


In the last weeks of August, i2CAT’s Senior Researcher Miquel Tarzán participated in a series of standardization meetings aimed at incorporating Recursive InterNetwork Architecture (RINA) Working Drafts into the next level of the process, which grants “Committee Draft” status to the documents.

To that end, Mr. Tarzán traveled to Boston in mid-August to attend the first session of the Comments Resolution Meeting, where the team discussed comments made to the RINA-based documents of the batch. The second part of the Meeting, which took place in Chongqing later in the month, addressed the rest of the documents. After that, an Interim Meeting was held also in Chongqing, where all the Working Drafts were approved for inclusion as Committee Drafts.

Miquel Tarzan took part in the three meetings, as well as in the Artificial Intelligence Enabled Network initiative celebrated in Chongqing, where he offered a conference on RINA.

The contribution to standard bodies such as ETSI and the ISO is a key role of the RINA area. The i2CAT Foundation is an active participant at ISO SC6 WG7 and ETSI ISG NGP, where the RINA specifications and RINA principles (respectively) are an important part of both groups work. i2CAT works hard to offer key insights into the RINA projects and to promote the advances of the Network, Transport and Future Network working groups.
