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.

TIA probing field test instrument requirements for balanced twisted-pair cabling

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.

Webinar: Cabling Standards Update

With many North American cabling projects specified to comply with TIA standards, these documents are among the most relevant to all parties involved in cabling-system design, installation, certification or management. This webinar will provide an update on both new and existing standards that are relevant to ICT professionals. Attendees will learn how to identify and understand the elements of a cabling standard that matter most to cabling design, installation & maintenance professionals; standard specifications related to high-density optical fiber cable; and the latest developments in copper cabling standards including single-pair cabling, PoE and cabling for WiFi support.

Webinar: Single Pair Ethernet Standards Update, Use Cases and Applications

Single Pair Ethernet is poised to enable a new class of low power devices that will facilitate networking and powering the billions of endpoint sensors forecasted by the year 2022. The SPE standards provide endpoint sensors with a unifying communication protocol and a common networking infrastructure extending the cost-effectiveness and plug-and-play simplicity of Ethernet. Endpoint sensor technology and use cases are evolving rapidly in industrial/process, building automation, data centers as well as to support “Intelligent Building” technologies; IoT infrastructure. TIA’s TR-42 committee is developing single pair telecommunication standards for single pair infrastructure topologies, cabling, and field testing.

Single-Pair Ethernet: The Smart Choice for Intelligent Buildings

As Ethernet transmission speeds increased, the IEEE recognized the need for additional options to sup-port lower-speed transmission rates for specific applications and environments.As a result, the most recent addition to the IEEE Std 802.3 standard is the IEEE Std 802.3cg-2019 amendment specifying 10-Mbit/sec transmission over single balanced twisted-pair copper ca-bling. While initially targeted at industrial and automotive environments, there are also opportunities for building automation functions. This article will examine the network architecture and use cases made possible by the application of this new technology in support of published SPE standards.

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.
