NBASE-T

Overview: The NBASE-T Alliance is a consortium focused on the development and deployment of products that support NBASE-T technology and the NBASE-T specification, a specification that defines 2.5 and 5 Gigabit per second (Gbps) speeds at up to 100 meters using the large, installed base of copper cabling in enterprise networks. Examples of applications that can use NBASE-T technology include: Wireless LAN (WLAN), enterprise wired infrastructure, Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices connected to the wired network infrastructure, small cells, security cameras, signage, and industrial/compact switches, etc.

3MF Consortium

Overview: An industry consortium working to define a 3D printing format that will allow design applications to send full-fidelity 3D models to a mix of other applications, platforms, services and printers. The 3MF (3D Manufacturing Format) consortium came into being to deliver to the 3D printing industry a file format that is: rich enough to fully describe a model, retaining internal information, color, and other characteristics; extensible so that it supports new innovations in 3D printing; interoperable; useful and broadly adopted; and free of the issues besetting other widely used file formats.

SAT IP

Overview: SAT>IP is an IP-based architecture for receiving and distributing satellite signals. In traditional satellite reception systems, RF (Radio Frequency) satellite signals are only translated in frequency before being distributed via dedicated coaxial cables. Satellite receivers are necessary to receive and demodulate satellite signals. With SAT>IP, satellite-delivered DVB-S/S2 RF signals are demodulated and converted towards IP right at the point of reception in a SAT>IP server. The intention of the SAT>IP project partners is to make SAT>IP an international standard that can be widely implemented in the satellite ecosystem worldwide and that is compatible across manufacturers and operators.

Wireless IoT Forum

Overview: The Wireless IoT Forum aims to deliver requirements and priorities to standards bodies where there are a lack of standards (eg. long-range wireless connectivity), and drive consensus where there are competing standards (eg. home device discovery). The Forum's goals are to: drive consensus and deliver market requirements (eg. services, features and functionality, application traffic profiles) for low power, low payload, IoT devices; encourage the adoption of WAN IoT connectivity in competition with, or as a complement to, LAN, PAN, mesh and other options, spanning all forms of WAN connectivity, including 3GPP cellular-IoT and license-exempt WAN IoT; and converge, regulate, broadcast and promote requirements for global adoption of technologies to deliver WAN IoT connectivity in license-exempt spectrum.

Green Button Alliance

Overview: The Green Button Alliance (GBA) is a non-profit, IRS 501(c)(3) corporation formed in 2015 to foster the development, compliance, and wide-spread adoption of the Green Button standard. The Green Button initiative is an industry-led effort to respond to a White House call-to-action to provide electricity customers with easy access to their energy usage data in a consumer-friendly and computer-friendly format. The Green Button effort was created with the support of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST), the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP), the Utility Communications ArchitectureInternational Users Group (UCAIug), and the White House. The North American Energy Standards Board's Energy Services Provider Interface (NAESB ESPI standard) serves as the basis for Green Button technology by providing a model for business practices, use cases, and an XML schema for the standard.
