Short Take: Group forms to develop IP-based standards

A number of computer companies and telecommunications firms are forming a new working group to develop an Internet protocol (IP)-based standard called IP Detail Record for network usage and customer billing. Among those involved are Sun Microsystems, Anderson Consulting, Oracle, and ECI Telecom. The standard is intended to address the growth of IP-based telecommunications networks as they are used for a wider array of services, such as voice and virtual connections.
