2 TSB Invention of the first electric telegraph 1844Samuel Morse sent his first public message over a telegraph Iine between Washington and Baltimore 1865Foundation of the International Telegraph Union by twenty States 17 Maywith the adoption of the first Convention. First Telegraph Regulations. 1876Alexander Graham Bell patents his invention of the telephone 1924Paris - Creation of CCIF (International Telephone Consultative Committee) 1925Paris - Creation of CCIT (International Telegraph Consultative Committee) 1927Washington - Creation of the CCIR (Intl. Radio Consultative Committee) 1932Madrid - Plenipotentiary Conference. Telegraph Union changes name to International Telecommunication Union 1947ITU becomes a Specialized Agency of the United Nations 1956Geneva - CCIF and CCIT merged into CCITT (International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee) 1992Geneva - Plenipotentiary Conference.

44 TSB 44 Some forums become A.4 members of ITU-T FS-VDSL Forum will become a Focus Group of ITU-T SG 16 Another Forum is considering to become a Focus Group of ITU-T Home page connections for ITU-T and Forums/Consortia ITU-T SG 16 management member be included in the Forum leadership New approaches… TO COOPERATE and WORK TOGETHER! New relationships between Forums/Consortia and ITU-T

45 TSB 45 Consensus: after WTSA-2000, the ITU-T procedures are now very streamlined and efficient so that any perception of slowness can no longer be attributed to the ITU-T methods… fully recognized that Sector Members have a significant leadership role in the ITU-T technical standardization activities… ITU-T is and should remain the unique worldwide venue for industry and governments to work together in developing, providing and promoting global consensus-based telecommunication requirements and standards for the Information Society Welcome you in ITU-T! ********** Industry Views on ITU-T Martigny, February 2001
