Consultative Committee for International Telephony and Telegraphy

   Abbreviated CCITT. An organization based in Geneva that develops worldwide data communications standards. Three main sets of standards have been established:
   • CCITT Groups 1-4 standards apply to facsimile transmissions.
   • CCITT V series of standards apply to modems and error detection and correction methods.
   • CCITT X series standards apply to LANs.
   Recommendations are published every four years. In 1993, after a reorganization, the name was changed to International Telecommunication Union (ITU), and even though ITU now creates recommendations and standards, you will still heart he CCITT standards mentioned.
