Demystifying 5G

Do you know 5G’s 3 major benefits, 8 technical goals that deliver those benefits, and 4 technology building blocks that meet the technical goals? This article discusses the technology’s enhanced mobile broadband/capacity enhancements, massive IoT/massive connectivity, and low latency/ultra-high reliability and low latency. The proximity of each application to each benefit in the triangle indicates the benefit’s influence on the application.

Program provides certification to TIA’s 942 data center standard

Data center facilities that earn the TIA’s accreditation undergo an audit to ensure they comply with the association’s standards for data center infrastructure. There program includes two types of audits and certification services: Data Center Design Validation (DCDV) and Data Center Conformity Certification (DCCC). The DCDV’s objective is to ensure that the proposed design drawings for new-build or as-built drawings of existing data centers, are complete and that the design, on paper, meets the requirements of the standard. The objective of the DCCC is to verify the data center has been implemented in conformity to the validated designs in the DCDV phase and the requirements specified in the ANSI/TIA-942.
