In the telecom industry, standards are required to govern all aspects and characteristics of communication equipment. Standards have a number of advantages and disadvantages. (Stallings, 2009). Standards are published documents that help to establish specs and procedures created to increase the reliability of the services people use every day. Standards address a range of issues, including but not limited to various protocols to help maximize product functionality and compatibility, facilitate interoperability and support consumer safety and public health. Standards form the fundamental building blocks for product development by establishing consistent protocols that can be universally understood and adopted. Standards also make it easier to understand and compare competing products. As standards are globally adopted and applied in many markets, they also fuel international trade. (IEEE, 2013).
The Internet Engineering Task Force has the mission to make the internet work better and to run faster. This isaccomplished by creating high quality and technical documents that are relevant to the influences that people use, design and manage through the internet (Working Groups). Within the IETF, there are many different working groups. Working groups in the IETF have primary mechanisms so the development of IETF and the specifications and guidelines have certain recommendations and standards (Working Groups). Working groups were created so that it can address and fix
