TIA launches series of briefing papers on Edge Data Centers

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.

TIA initiates work on new Single Pair Multi-Drop (SPMD) copper cabling, component spec

TIA’s TR-42.7 Engineering Committee on Telecommunications Copper Cabling Systems (568) has issued a call for interest for document ANSI/TIA-568.6, initially titled, “Single Pair Multi-Drop (SPMD) cabling and component specifications.” The standard will address the need to support applications that use a bus topology with multiple branches connecting communication devices.

Rip and Replace Legislation is Critical to Securing the Network, says TIA

The Senate companion to the Secure and Trusted Communications Network Act is a critical step in securing our network and ensuring the integrity of the telecommunications supply chain as we usher in the 5G era. TIA applauds this decisive action to support efforts for the replacement of equipment that raises national security risks with equipment from trusted suppliers. By passing the Act, Congress is also sending a clear signal to the global industry that the U.S. will continue to lead the way on 5G security.

TIA TR-42.11 committee issues call for interest on 2 new optical fiber projects

TIA TR-42.11 Engineering Committee on Optical Fiber Systems (568) has issued a call for interest on two documents: ANSI/TIA-568.3-E and TIA-526.14-D. The revision to TIA-568.3-D will include  General Updates and any additional content deemed appropriate by formulating subcommittee. For TIA-526.14-D, the committee will develop guidelines for Optical Power Loss Measurement of Installed Multimode Fiber Cable Plant and add reference to bend insensitive MM fiber for testing with EF compliant launch cord.

Small but mighty: Setting the standard for the future of IoT

For edge data centers to live up to their potential, a number of specific requirements need to be taken into consideration, directly impacting the design, size, costs and location. Standards bodies like TIA are defining the differences between traditional data centers and edge data centers and developing the standards that address availability, power, cooling, physical security, and critical cabling systems.

FCC Chairman to lead TIA Panel Discussion on Supply Chain Security

TIA will convene public and private sector leaders at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on February 26, with U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai heading up a panel discussion titled “The need for supply chain security in a 5G connected world.” Panelists will review the global security risks of our current network landscape and highlight both government intervention and industry-led programs that are needed to secure the telecommunications network and supply chain.

Podcast: 5G will come with abundant opportunities — and some caveats

In this podcast, TIA’s CEO David Stehlin, shares insights on how 5G promises to transform our lives and our economy by offering expanded network connectivity, speed, and capacity. Insights include: How the advent of 5G will change current network setups; Why 5G’s digital transformation is emerging at this time, and what is needed to ensure its success; the risks to the global supply chain as new technologies are added to networks; and how businesses can take steps to ensure a secure supply chain.
