Assignment 1: standard research | Information Systems homework help

The following Website may be used for reference to complete this assignment. The Website represents an electronic document titled “Standards Organizations” written by William Stallings (2009), located at http://www.box.net/shared/9dtnzvwys8/1/15730219/164146343/1.

Write a three to four (3-4) page paper in which you:

  1. Select one (1) of the working groups in the IETF or IEEE and briefly summarize what this group is working on.
  2. Justify the need of the IEEE 802 standard used in networking.
  3. Evaluate the three (3) standard organizations including IEEE, ISO, and ANSI to determine the most important for communication technology.
  4. Take a position on the need for a federal standards agency such as NIST. Include supporting evidence to justify your opinion.
  5. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.
