Telecom and Hardware subcommittee members,
At the TEITAC meeting last week, the hardware subcommittee proposed the
following language for application across all products:
"Where provided, at least one of each type of expansion slots, ports,
connectors, and wireless connections shall comply with publicly
available industry standards."
Questions were raised by several members of the TEITAC committee
regarding its application across all products especially Telecom. Based
on those comments the following options regarding this language are
proposed for discussion:
1 - the language is fine since it allows it adds wireless as a means of
support "industry standard ports". For example the use of Bluetooth
with phone headset. Thus, no changes or additional details are required
and it should be applied across the entire product breadth.
2 - There needs to be some additional language to address proprietary
ports and how they can be made accessible.
3 - The language should be limited to specific products, for example, it
originally was a desktop and portables requirement and should only apply
to those products.
Please provide feedback and discussion on this topic so that the
hardware subcommittee can develop a final recommendation.
