TIA to Address Standards for Terrestrial Mobile Multimedia Multicasts

The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) has formed a new TIA engineering committee, "Terrestrial Mobile Multimedia Multicast" (TM3), also known as TR-47, to address wireless triple-play standards.

The proposed scope for the new committee is the development and maintenance of terrestrial mobile multimedia multicast interface, component, sub-system, system, network and protocol standards. While the scope of the engineering committee may include protocol and architectural aspects, it is expected to focus primarily on standards for radio interfaces, testing methodologies, performance and reliability standards, and equipment design guides.

The first meeting will be held September 9.
