Stakeholders Invited to Contact TIA Regarding Participation
Arlington VA. (January 4, 2024) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) TR-42.12 Engineering Committee on Optical Fiber and Cables has issued a call for interest for document TIA-455-71-A initially titled ” FOTP-71 Procedure to Measure Temperature- Shock Effects on Fiber Optic Components”. TR-42.12 is developing guidelines in the area defined by the following scope: This document describes a procedure to define the exposure conditions for testing resistance of fiber optic components to temperature shock. It also outlines the general approach used for measuring and evaluating the ability of a fiber optic component to withstand sudden changes of ambient temperature that could arise during shipment, storage, or use.
The stakeholders may include, but are not limited to: Telecom, Optical Fiber Manufacturers, Developers and Users.
TIA is actively seeking participation in these projects from the user and general interest communities.
