The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) recently announced winners of its inaugural TIA Star Awards, which recognize the association’s most active companies and individuals for their contributions to the advancement of TIA, as well as industry objectives and initiatives.
Jonathan Jew, president of J&M Consulting, earned the top individual honor and Motorola Solutions earned the top company honor.
The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) on May 2 announced that its TR-14 committee, which oversees TIA’s standards for towers and antenna supporting structures, has begun the process of updating the TIA-222-H standard since the document’s last full revision in 2017. TIA invites all industry stakeholders to submit input for the update of TIA-222-H to TIA-222-I.
TIA-222 is a structural standard that defines requirements for antenna supporting structures to ensure they meet the needs of modern communications systems in various environmental conditions like wind, snow, and ice.
Steve Cowles and special guests Bob Voss, and Arvind Patel discuss Single Pair Ethernet benefits and use cases.They also give an update on the recently released TIA-568.5
Balanced Single Twisted-Pair Telecommunications Cabling and Components Standard.
New IEEE 802.3 standards and technologies deliver power and data over a single pair of wires to address the challenges of ‘operational technology” (OT) automation applications and simplify OT networks. This talk will explore some of the unique features and reasons for Single Pair Ethernet’s growing adoption in the OT space leveraging modern technology to revisit core Ethernet features and speeds suitable for automation and control applications.

Experts consider Single Pair Ethernet to be the next generation of communication architecture in automation. The concept behind it is essentially an extension of the Ethernet to the sensor, that is wherever “tracks” (in the literal sense) rather than data highways are needed in every inch of space within the plant – it is compact, flexible and offers extensive reach.

Read this CI&M interview on emerging SPE standards and technologies with Adnan Ahmed, Valerie Maguire, Harshang Pandya and Bob Voss, members of TIA’s Single Pair Ethernet Consortium (SPEC).
Learn about the most common misconceptions about building automation solutions and why these myths are preventing optimization. The 3 top myths include: building automation solutions only reduce energy costs, Smart Buildings only benefit owners and employees, and building automation systems leave buildings vulnerable to hackers.
Fog and Edge Computing lie on the peripheries of the cloud. Fog computing focuses on the space of data area between the source and the cloud. Edge computing, on the other hand, centers on where data is collected.
The merging of IoT applications with edge computing will make the required data transfer speed a reality. It is important not to ignore security in the overall structure. The combination of edge, IoT and zero trust via 5G will enable secure, high-performance application scenarios to become a reality, protected from unwanted prying eyes.
