Quality assurance is important cross-industry priorities. Device and network assurance are critical to secure, scalable and reliable connectivity, which enables all internet traffic and applications.
TIA, through its 2017 merger with QuEST Forum, provides the TL 9000 quality management system, along with sustainability standards and performance practices to connectivity service providers and vendors. The TL 9000 standard is the telecom industry’s unique extension to ISO 9001. The QuEST Forum community within TIA will continue to develop, implement and enhance the TL 9000 quality management system, along with sustainability standards and performance practices.
The TL 9000 standard addresses the supply chain quality requirements of the worldwide telecommunications industry to protect the integrity and use of telecom hardware, software and services. To ensure quality, TL 9000 defines system requirements, eliminates the need for multiple quality management standards, and provides a consistent set of quality expectations across the global telecom supply chain.
