TIA is entering the final stages of completion for #SCS9001 which will be the first verifiable and process-based #supplychain security standard for the #ICT industry and is now accepting comments before the release.
TIA Issues Call for Interest on new Project for Measurement of Optical Power Loss of Installed Single-Mode Fiber Cable Plant
The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) TR-42.11 Engineering Committee on Optical Systems has issued a call for interest for document TIA-526.7-A initially titled ” Measurement of Optical Power Loss of Installed Single-Mode Fiber Cable Plant, Adoption of IEC 61280-4-2 edition 2: Fibre-Optic Communications Subsystem Test Procedures – Part 4-2: Installed Cable Plant – Single-Mode Attenuation and Optical Return Loss Measurement”.
TR-42.11 is developing guidelines in the area defined by the following scope: “This standard is applicable to the measurement of attenuation and optical return loss of installed optical fiber cable plant containing single-mode fiber. The principles of this standard may be applied to cable plants containing branching devices (splitters) and at specific wavelength ranges in situations where passive wavelength selective components are deployed, such as WDMs, CWDM and DWDM devices. This standard is not intended to apply to cable plant that includes active devices such as fiber amplifiers or dynamic channel equalizers.
TIACall for Interest on Requirements for Field Test Instruments and Measurements for Balanced Twisted-Pair Cabling
TIA’s TR-42.7 Engineering Committee 568 has issued a call for interest for document TIA-1152-A, “Requirements for Field Test Instruments and Measurements for Balanced Twisted-Pair Cabling”. TR-42.7 is developing guidelines incorporating new specifications and other information as required to support field testing of cabling described in ANSI/TIA-568-C.2-1.
To meet exploding network bandwidth demand, 50 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s signaling lanes in server (and fiber to machine) and switch links, have emerged requiring higher speed standards. Ethernet and Fibre Channel have both either recently published (for 50 Gb/s per lane) or are developing (for 100 Gb/s per lane) new low cost, short reach standards that will utilize these lane rates, for both serial and parallel solutions. This presentation will provide an update on those standards efforts, along with the underlying market, industry, and technology trends.
TR-42.7 Engineering Committee on Telecommunications Copper Cabling Systems (568) on Mar. 24 issued a call for interest for document TIA-1152-A, initially titled “Requirements for Field Test Instruments and Measurements for Balanced Twisted-Pair Cabling.”
Per a TIA statement, TR-42.7 is developing guidelines in the area defined by the following scope: “Revise ANSI/TIA-1152-2009 as determined in TIA TR-42.7, incorporating new specifications and other information as required to support field testing of cabling described in ANSI/TIA-568-C.2-1.”
Per TIA, stakeholders for the project may include, but are not limited to: field tester manufacturers; test equipment manufacturers; structured cabling products manufacturers; and structured cabling installers.
Single Pair Ethernet is a key development and the infrastructure that will make another level of IIoT and Industry 4.0 connectivity possible. For the reliable establishment of the entire future SPE ecosystem, standards for transmission protocols, cabling and device components are all being jointly developed by a broad coalition of industrial automation and control suppliers.
Listen to this interview Dan Barrera With Ideal Networks About TIA 42 Cabling Standards & Testing Processes and the upcoming Single Pair Ethernet standard.
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) elected TIA CEO David Stehlin to join its 2021 Board of Directors as a director-at-large.
The demands being placed on our data centers are larger than ever. This is true for all types and sizes of data centers, from the largest Hyperscale, to Private, and even Edge. This webinar will address advancements in Single and Multimode fiber and how they are being used in data centers. This presentation will look at the latest applications and the requirements for fiber to support them. After that, we will look at testing these fibers, calculating a loss budget for current and future applications, and how you can increase confidence in the test results. At the end of this presentation, you will understand how improvements in fiber construction allow communications at multiple wavelengths are helping to reach speeds in excess of 400G as well as what testing will assure that the fiber has been properly installed.
Single pair Ethernet is coming to a building near you. This webinar will discuss 802.3cg industrial and intelligent building targets, provide an overview of SPE use cases including industrial process control, intelligent building connections, sensors and building controls. Our speakers will then address PoE, PoDL, cable heating considerations, and SPE vs. batteries and wireless. The webinar will wrap up with a discussion on SPE testing
