- Document editors compatible with the supported file formats for drafting ETSI standards
- Internet navigator compatible with Internet Explorer

This configuration can be provided by ETSI during the sessions in the ETSI premises. When working from the home office, the expert Company must provide access to the Internet, the e-mail account and an equivalent IT configuration. ETSI will not provide any software license nor hardware equipment for use outside the ETSI internal network.
Document storage and exchange areas
ETSI will provide a temporary common storage area to share documents within the STF an with the reference TB during the lifetime of the STF. This area is located under https://docbox.etsi.org/STF/ and can be accessed with an FTP client application.
Official contributions to the reference TB/WG will be uploaded on the ETSI Portal.
Access to documents storage and exchange areas require an "ETSI on Line" (EoL) account, which is reserved to ETSI Members. ETSI Members can request an EoL account directly from the ETSI Portal. Experts from non-Members will be given temporary access rights, after the contract with ETSI is signed.
e-mail List Server
ETSI will provide access to an e-mail server listserv.etsi.org and create distribution lists to exchange e-mails between the STF experts and with the reference TB. An e-mail archive service is also available.
Experts must comply with the requirements of the ETSI IT charter.
More information and support can be obtained from the ETSI IT Helpdesk.
