Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers The IEEE is a leading developer of standards that underpin many of today's technologies. These standards are developed in a unique environment that builds consensus in an open process based on input from all interested parties. With nearly 1,300 standards either completed or under development, the IEEE is a central source of standardization in both traditional and emerging fields, particularly telecommunications, information technology and power generation.

NetApp Participation
NetApp is an active participant in IEEE standards development and adoption in two key areas: the IEEE 802.3 Working Group, which develops standards for Ethernet networks; and the IEEE P1619 Security in Storage working group (SISWG), which is working on standards for encrypted storage media.
