The applications of DTS data in the oil and gas industry are growing rapidly. There has been an emergence of business workflows that depend on DTS data in order to make timely decisions. This is a radical change from the way DTS data was handled in the past, where a limited audience consumed the data.

In addition to the changes observed in the oil and gas industry there has been an increased application of DTS technology to other areas as well. It is important that the new standard can accommodate other scenarios and it could be extended beyond upstream oil and gas to other industries if required.
