2. Normative References

The following standards contain provisions that, through reference in this text, constitute provisions of this American National Standard. At the time of publication, the editions indicated were valid. All standards are subject to revision, and parties to agreements based on this standard are encouraged to investigate the possibility of applying the most recent editions of the standards indicated below.

The terms and accompanying definitions contained in this standard are drawn from authoritative sources listed in full in the References section below. Major sources of these definitions were

  • Federal Standard 1037C, Glossary of Telecommunication Terms, 1996.
  • ANSI X.172, American National Standard Dictionary of Information Technology, 1996, and
  • Code of Federal Regulations,Sec. 47, National Archives and Records Administration, <http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/cfr/>
  • T1-523-2001, Telecom Glossary 2000.

The editors of this standard have rewritten many definitions as necessary either to reflect technology advances or to make definitions phrased in specialized terminology more understandable to a broader audience.
