IEEE Standards Association to Exhibit at 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show and Highlight Enabling Consumer Connectivity Through Consensus Building

The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) today announced that it is exhibiting at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, 8-11 January 2013. By showcasing several of its standards, and standards-development projects in health-device communications, home networking, mobile video, smart grid-into-home devices and electric vehicles, the IEEE-SA will highlight enabling consumer connectivity through consensus building.

The IEEE-SA will exhibit in IEEE Booth 30242 in South Hall 3 of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

WHAT:

 
At 2013 International CES, the IEEE-SA will demonstrate how it is enabling consumer connectivity through consensus building by showcasing standards, and standards-development projects in a wide variety of areas, including health-device communications, home networking, mobile video, smart grid-into-home devices and electric vehicles.
 
Among the features in Booth 30242, the IEEE-SA will offer demonstrations of health-device communications based on the IEEE 11073™ family of standards.

 

WHEN:

 

CES duration: 8-11 January 2013
IEEE 11073 demonstrations: 9-10 January 2013, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
 

WHERE:

 

Booth 30242, Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall 3
 

WHY:

 

By bringing industry together to craft interoperable standards for products that consumers crave, the IEEE-SA helps foster consumer connectivity. With processes for consensus building that impact the entire standards lifecycle including pre-standards technology exploration, standards development and market implementation, the IEEE-SA has an unparalleled track record when it comes to creating the standards that connect people.

 

As a result of enabling consumer connectivity through consensus building, the IEEE-SA supports advancing technology for humanity, helping to improve quality of life, driving innovation, helping to create global markets and protecting health and safety.
