Technology Research Advisory Group(TAG)
In principle, TTC drafts and publishes its standards based on de jure standards developed by authorized SDOs such as the ITU-T. However, TTC also pays careful attention to trends in de facto standards developed by global forums and consortiums so as to ensure that TTC standards appropriately reflect the studies and outcomes of such organizations. Each year the Technology Research Advisory Group (TAG) analyzes the activities of major international forums and consortiums around the world, reporting its findings on de facto standardization activity trends to the Strategic Committee and proposing possible new areas of focus for standardization activities. Outcomes of research and analysis are posted on the TTC website annually.
