TIA Launches New Engineering Committee to Develop Industry Standards for Information Communications Technology Systems

Arlington, VA (May 29, 2019) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), the leading association representing the manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech communications networks, today announced the formation of the TR-60 ICT Lifecycle Management Committee to develop standards for information communications technology (ICT) systems, infrastructure, and services.

“TIA is proud to lead the way in developing industry standards that will drive global change management and improve technology’s role in achieving business objectives,” said TIA CEO Wes Johnston “This new committee is part of TIA’s larger commitment to invest in, and stay ahead of, changing industry needs as the ICT landscape evolves.”

“The rapid development, release and adoption of new ICT equipment and infrastructure has resulted in inconsistent technology management,” said TIA Standards Vice President David Bain. “By addressing the root cause issues with a suite of Technology Management Standards, the TR-60 Committee will drive global change management and improve technology’s role in achieving organizational business objectives.”

The TR-60 ICT Lifecycle Management Committee will be 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 the writing and maintenance of 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.
