TIA Position Paper:Trust in ICT Supply Chain Security Can Only Come from Global Industry-Driven Standards and Programs
The global telecom network is at a greater risk for #cyberattacks than ever – it threatens to disrupt business & economic growth. Learn how our industry & TIA is responding through industry-driven #ICT supply chain security standards. TIA’s position paper outlines the new landscape of security and economic risks to all those involved in developing and deploying wireless, IoT, 5G, and computer-rich networks.
CommScope’s Upendra Pingle explains how new standards, products & services will give enterprises more choices in 2020 as to how they meet increased demands, as well as meet increased end-user expectations for in-building wireless.
Check out this article from #IEEE P802.3bt Task Force acting chair, Chad Jones on Power over #Ethernet (#PoE) classification and powering options. It provides a good look at the IEEE 802.3af and 802.3at #standards.
Webinar: Considerations When Applying TIA1005-A to the Network Infrastructure in Various Harsh Environments
Designing and deploying according to the TIA-1005-A specification is critical to industrial, harsh and outdoor spaces.Compliant connectivity and cabling can withstand the test of time and outlast their intended useful life cycle of 30+ years. In this webinar Panduit will focus on why it is important to examine this specification and evaluate the connectivity and cabling requirements that support these environments. We will discuss ways in which you can make sound choices when it comes to deploying a future proof network in industrial, harsh, and outdoor environments.
A smart home standard is here! Many popular devices will complete OCF 2.1 certification in 2020, ensuring robust and secure connectivity between devices. The OCF Certification Program helps manufacturers create products that “just work” with other OCF Certified IoT devices regardless of their form factors, operating systems, service providers or transports. OCF’s 2.1 specification, a recognized ISO standards specification, ensures this interoperability is built into all OCF Certified devices.
Navigant Research predicts that the global market for IoT solutions in smart buildings will grow from $8.5B in 2020 to over $22B in only six years. As the industry continually pushes for more connectivity and smart city integration, the importance of scalable and interoperable IoT technology increases.
Panduit’s twisted-pair copper connectors meet the specifications of the IEEE 802.3bt standard for Power over Ethernet published in January 2019. That standard defines a maximum of 90 watts. While the standard itself is recently updated, Panduit’s certification to the higher loads has been in place since August 2016.
TIA TR-42.12 Engineering Committee on Optical Fibers and Cables issued a Call for Interest on two documents ANSI/TIA-455-191-C and ANSI/TIA-492AAAF.
The National Electrical Code® (NEC®) is published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) with the revisions on a three-year schedule. The 2020 NEC, which replaces the 2017 NEC, was issued by the NFPA in August, 2019. This article provides the reader with a guide to the key changes in the 2020 National Electrical Code that are of interest to manufacturers, installers, distributors and users of data/comm cables.
