TIA Issues Call for Interest on new Project for ANSI/TIA-492CAAC-A Sectional Specification for Class B Single-Mode Optical Fibers; modification of IEC 60793-2-50 Ed. 6.0:2018
Stakeholders Invited to Contact TIA Regarding Participation.
Arlington VA. (Nov. 17, 2020) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) TR-42.12 Engineering Committee on Optical Fibers and Cables has issued a call for interest for document ANSI/TIA-492AAAF-A initially titled ” ANSI/TIA-PN-492CAAC-A Sectional Specification for Class B Single-Mode Optical Fibers; modification of IEC 60793-2-50 Ed. 6.0:2018″. TR-42.12 is developing guidelines in the area defined by the following scope: ” Revise the TIA fiber designations in ANSI/TIA-492CAAC per contribution TR42.12-2020-10-007. The modifications may include: In Table II of ANSI/TIA foreword, modify TIA column heading to “ANSI/TIA-492CAAC” and modify all designations to be identical to IEC 60793-2-50 Ed. 6.0:2018 designations. In Table 1 TIA category/class column, add original TIA document number to each designation. I.e. IVa (TIA-492CAAA) and IVa (TIA-492CAAB).”
The stakeholders may include, but are not limited to: TR-42.1, TR-42.11, TR-42.13, IEC 86B, IEC 86C, ISO/IEC/JTC1/SC25/WG3, end-users, installers, designers of optical fiber cabling systems.
TIA is actively seeking participation in these projects from the user and general interest communities.
