BICSI Standards rollback pricing is still on, according to the association. BICSI brought back pricing from 2009 for their Standards Program Silver Anniversary in June. The response was so overwhelming that BICSI decided to keep that pricing.
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.
With the increase in Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS), and the industry looking at autonomous vehicles on the horizon, the intelligent car needs growing bitrates to flow through its nervous system. The protocol of choice to implement the communication infrastructure in the car is Ethernet, and the 802.3 Working Group of the IEEE standardization organization is already paving the way to have multi-gigabit per second optical Ethernet in vehicles. A dedicated Study Group is already working on the future IEEE 802.3cz standard.
Join FOTC Standards Chair Cindy Montstream for LAN, Standards, News & Trends: 2020. During this webinar Cindy will review current and pending structured cabling standards from the TIA, IEEE and other standards bodies. Attendees will earn 1 BICSI CEC
The Ethernet Technology Consortium has announced the completion of a specification for 800 Gigabit Ethernet technology. Based on many of the technologies used in the current top-end 400 Gigabit Ethernet protocol, the new spec is formally known as 800GBASE-R.The 800GbE spec adds new media access control (MAC) and physical coding sublayer (PCS) methods, which tweaks these functions to distribute data across eight physical lanes running at a native 106.25Gbps. The 800GBASE-R specification is built on two 400 GbE 2xClause PCSs to create a single MAC which operates at a combined 800Gbps.
The Modular Plug Terminated Link, or MPTL, where a horizontal cable run terminated on one end to an RJ-45 plug connects directly into a device, has become increasingly popular for connecting a variety of devices—from wireless access points and security cameras, to PoE lights and video displays—essentially wherever it’s deemed impractical or unsafe to deploy an outlet and equipment cord. Approved within ANSI-TIA 568.2-D as an option for connecting devices, MPTLs aren’t just popular in North America. But some of you have asked about regions that don’t follow TIA standards, and if it possible to test an MPTL to ISO/IEC or CENELEC standards. While the short answer is “not yet,” you can still make sure your MPTLs will perform.
The IEEE 802.3cg standard is a single-pair Ethernet standard that that supports speeds up to 10 Mbps and extends Ethernet range up to 1,000 meters. Learn about 802.3cg’s two link-layer standards, 10Base-T1S and 10Base-T1L, and what they mean for IoT and automotive applications.
Commercial real estate developers and building owners are striving to construct smarter buildings where building systems converge and communicate over a unified IP-based infrastructure, enabling system integration that drives advanced automation for efficiency, optimized operations and enhanced occupant experiences. The implementation of 5G, edge data centers and broadband IoT connectivity, combined with new advancements in sensor technology, data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) now enable buildings to become more intelligent and valuable than ever, creating the critical foundation of larger smart cities and communities. But when it comes to investment strategy, planning, designing and deploying an entire smart building ecosystem, how do key stakeholders know they are making the right decisions for maximum building intelligence and sustainability that the future demands?
Corning’s FREEDM™ B2 Gel-free Loose Tube Steel Armour Double Jacket Indoor/Outdoor cable family, was developed to provide the backbone for optical cabling infrastructure in railway tunnels. The cable complies with revised, stricter EU guidelines for low flammability, low fire spread, low toxicity and low smoke density.
TIA has released a series of new informational briefing papers from its Edge Data Center Working Group. The papers are a first step towards creating an industry-driven framework for future standards development. Each paper outlines a different focus area for new Edge Data Center implementations including site selection and survivability, to security, thermal management, and operations and maintenance.
