Arlington VA. (December 9, 2022) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) TR-42.12 Engineering Committee on Optical Fibers and Cables has issued a call for interest for document TIA-4920000-C initially titled “ANSI/TIA-4920000-C Generic Specification for Optical Fibers .” TR-42.12 is developing guidelines in the area defined by the following scope: “Adopt with modifications IEC 60793-2:2019 as ANSI/TIA-4920000-C to update the specification and achieve closer harmonization with international standards. The modifications may include: 1. addition of TIA documents to the normative references, 2. addition of TIA test methods closely equivalent to IEC test methods, 3. addition of TIA classification of fibers closely equivalent to IEC classifications 4. changes within text to include TIA classifications and references.”
The stakeholders may include, but are not limited to: Users of optical fiber such as optical fiber cable manufacturers and their customers, optical fiber transmission and test equipment manufacturers. Specifiers of optical fiber and cable such as telecommunications companies and standards bodies that define transmission protocols.
TIA is actively seeking participation in these projects from the user and general interest communities.
