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.
A passive optical LAN infrastructure can equip a facility to support the coming building-as-a-service model.
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. This article will recap some of the goings-on within TR-42 and provide information on the formation of TR-60.
From the BICSI Fall Conference in Las Vegas, NV, our chief editor Patrick McLaughlin previews some of the technical content that will be delivered to attendees. He also interviews a founding member of the TIA’s newly created Single Pair Ethernet Consortium
TIA’s TR-42.7 Engineering Committee on Telecommunications Copper Cabling Systems (568) issued a call for interest for document ANSI/TIA-568.5, titled the Single Balanced Twisted-Pair Cabling and Components Standard which will provide specifications for cables, connectors, cords, links and channels using 1-pair connectivity in non-industrial premises telecommunications networks.The standard will focus on MICE1 environments and will include cabling and component performance requirements and test procedures, reliability requirements and test procedures, as well as guidelines for adaptations to four pair cabling.
TIA and the Telecommunications Standards Development Society, India (TSDSI), have signed a memorandum of understanding to advance ICT standards with a special focus on smart buildings and wireless infrastructure. They will share technical knowledge and best practices, participate in events, facilitate discussions with standards-related forums, and work together to identify potential areas for cooperation.
The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) established the Single Pair Ethernet Consortium (SPEC) to accelerate the adoption of next-generation operational technology (OT) and Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity. Founding members of SPEC include Belden, CommScope, Panduit and the Siemon Company. SPEC will provide vendor-neutral representation for technology leaders and users across the building automation technology ecosystem.
David Stehlin has been named the TIA’s new Chief Executive Officer, effective September 23, 2019. Stehlin brings thirty years of experience starting, leading and transforming innovative global networking and telecommunications companies through ever-changing competitive landscapes. Most recently, Stehlin served as the General Manager of Lifecycle Service Assurance at Spirent Communications (SPT.L), a global provider of testing, assurance, analytics, and security solutions where his group led the market in 5G network emulation testing. Prior to his tenure at Spirent, Stehlin served as CEO of MRV Communications, President of Overture Networks and CEO and President of Ceterus Networks. He also served as CEO of several start-up ventures, including Valo, Inc. and OnePath Networks.
The TIA-942 standard for data centers is the world’s most popular data center standard. It’s used by well over 70% 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 that criteria.The new TIA program ensures consistency and conformity across the audits of data centers, which will result in better performance.
BICSI, the Security Industry Association (SIA) and TIA share a common goal of moving to more efficient security systems to reduce risks and protect soft targets. This article details security advancements since 2013 and looks at the latest technology trends including sensor diversity, object recognition-driven AI an how ICT is championing smart city development.
