Abstract
A brief overview is given on background issues, concerning in particular the network technologies and services being developed to face the new market challenges. The paper focuses then on the current status of international standardization activities in the high speed arena. Established organizations such as CCITT, ISO, ETSI, IEEE have been working on these issues for the past few years; a number of interest groups (ESIG, EURESCOM, ATM Forum) have also been created, to answer the growing need for early implementation specifications, based on available standards and suitable for early field trials. Finally, the evolution trends in the high speed arena are dealt with, summarizing the expected progress and highlighting crucial areas where close attention will have to be paid to ensure the timely development of standards.
