Press release: ICT products conforming to ITU standards listed in public database
New ITU conformity database seen as key enabler for e-Health market
Geneva, 19 December 2014 – ITU has launched the ‘ICT product conformity database’ to provide industry with a means to publicize the conformance of ICT products and services with ITU-T’s international standards. E-Health products covering 23 classes of technology have been volunteered for inclusion in the database at its launch, with the intention of assisting buyers in their efforts to select standards-compliant products.
The new database showcases ICT products and services found to comply with ITU-T standards by conformance tests carried out by third-party test labs. The e-Health devices populating the database were tested for compliance with the specifications of Recommendation ITU-T H.810 “Interoperability design guidelines for personal health systems”, a key standard approved in December 2013, which contains the Continua Design Guidelines. The recently issued Continua 2014 Design Guidelines are adopted to ITU specifications and feature interface between personal area network (PAN), local area network (LAN) and touch area network (TAN) health devices and application hosting devices (AHDs) including NFC (near-field communication), USB and Bluetooth Smart Technology (Low Energy); and consent enforcement via wide area network (WAN) and Health Record Network (HRN) health devices.
