TIA Elects Leadership for New Engineering Committee Developing Information Communications Technology Lifecycle Management Standards

As the leading standards body for ICT Lifecycle Management, TR-60 welcomes Jerry Bowman of Square Mile Systems, Inc., Gregory Bramham of Global Com, Inc., and Christy Miller of BCL IT Consulting as the new 2020 Committee officers

Arlington, VA (March 11, 2020) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), the leading association representing the manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech communications networks, today announced the 2020 leadership of its new TR-60 ICT Lifecycle Management Committee.  The committee, launched in May 2019, develops standards for information communications technology (ICT) systems, infrastructure, and services.

“TIA understands that industry standards are the foundation to building a trusted environment for global networks. We’re proud to see TIA’s committees lead the way in developing standards that will help our members and the industry achieve critical business objectives,” said TIA CEO Dave Stehlin. “The work being planned for TR-60 will be groundbreaking and we thank the new leadership team for their willingness to step forward.”

“TR-60 is a game-changer for the ICT industry. We’ve spent decades developing world class manufacturing and installation standards and now it’s time to focus on management. TR-60 is taking the next step that defines the management requirements for technology to complement the engineering standards that have been in place for years,” said TR-60 Chair Jerry Bowman. “TR-60 is the rest of the technology story.  It permits us to plan the end just as we planned the beginning.”

The TR-60 Committee held its first meeting of the year and elected the following new 2020 committee officers:

  • Jerry Bowman, Chair (Square Mile Systems, Inc.)
  • Gregory Bramham, Vice-Chair (Global Com, Inc.)
  • Christy Miller, Secretary (BCL IT Consulting)

The TR-60 ICT Lifecycle Management Committee is responsible for the development and maintenance of

voluntary standards that address the management of technology for qualifying vertical markets, focusing on planning, documentation, design, remediation and operation of ICT systems, infrastructure and services.

A major function of the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) is convening the ICT and managing the process whereby companies write voluntary industry standards and specifications. These activities are carried out by the volunteer members of TIA engineering committees. Recent meeting reports, agendas and notices for upcoming meetings, as well as links to some of the most popular standards from each committee are available on the public engineering committee pages.
