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-455-86-A initially titled “FOTP-86 Optical Fiber Cable Jacket Shrinkage”. TR-42.12 is developing guidelines in the area defined by the following scope: This standard is applicable to all types of jacketed cables. This procedure defines the methodology for measuring the shrinkage potential for cable jackets. The primary method involves the jacket, in situ. The secondary method measures the “native” shrinkage of the as-extruded jacket by removing it from a cable. Project need: Provide updates for an existing standard.
The stakeholders may include, but are not limited to: Cable designers, cable manufacturers, connectivity designers.
TIA is actively seeking participation in these projects from the user and general interest communities.
