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-C initially titled “General Requirements for Standard Test Procedures for Optical Fibers, Cables, Transducers, Sensors, Connecting and Terminating Devices, and other Fiber Optic Components”.
TR-42.12 is developing guidelines in the area defined by the following scope: This document, together with its addenda, provides uniform test procedures for testing fiber optic components intended for, or forming a part of, optical communications and data transmission systems. Neither this document, nor its addenda, provide procedures designed for testing fiber optic systems. For test procedures for fiber optic systems or subsystems, refer to the TIA/EIA-526 series of documents.
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.
