Note: Many topics at this site are reduced versions of the text in "The Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunications." Search results will not be as extensive as a search of the book's CD-ROM.

The primary groups, standards, and organizations related to networking and the Internet are listed in the following table. Refer to the related entries page for more information. A complete list of standards organizations, associations, consortiums, and other groups would fill a whole book. Therefore, this section provides links to sites on the Web that have links to standards groups, organizations, and associations. Also refer to "Internet," "Internet Standards," and "Internet Organizations and Committees" for information about Internet- related organizations and standards.
