Webinar: TIA-942: The Case for Edge Data Center Certification

TIA-942 standard for data centers is the world’s most popular data center standard. It’s used by well over 70% of the population [of facilities] around the world. Data center stakeholders have been very concerned about ensuring that their data center was designed, built, and approved as having met those criteria. This webinar illustrates the importance and benefits of Edge Data Center certification as a precursor to 5G deployment.

TIA’s cabling-standards development committee keeping busy

TIA’s TR-42 Telecommunications Cabling Systems Engineering Committee is in the midst of a busy year, with multiple standard-development projects completed and several others underway. Meanwhile, the TIA also is at work launching a different standards-development committee that also will concern itself with information communications technology (ICT) systems, not limited to cabling infrastructure.
