Arlington VA. (July 6, 2021) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) TR-42.1 Engineering Committee on Premises Telecommunications Infrastructure has issued a call for interest for document TIA-1179-B initially titled ” Healthcare Facility Telecommunications Infrastructure Standard “. TR-42.1 is developing guidelines in the area defined by the following scope: “This Standard specifies requirements for telecommunications infrastructure for healthcare facilities (e.g. hospitals, clinics). It specifies cabling, cabling topologies, and cabling distances. Additionally, pathways and spaces (e.g. sizing and location), and ancillary requirements are addressed. Telecommunications cabling specified by this standard is intended to support a wide range of healthcare facilities and systems.”
The stakeholders may include, but are not limited to: Cabling system designers, installers, consultants, architects, engineers; manufacturers, facilities management organizations, contractors, hospital administration.
TIA is actively seeking participation in these projects from the user and general interest communities.

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. On the public engineering committee pages, users will find recent meeting reports, agendas and notices for upcoming meetings, as well as links to some of the most popular standards from each committee. TIA is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
