TIA Issues Call for Interest on new Project for Optical Fiber Cabling Component Standard

Arlington VA. (January 09, 2020) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) TR-42.11 Engineering Committee on Optical Fiber Systems (568) has issued a call for interest for document ANSI/TIA-568.3-E initially titled “Optical Fiber Cabling Component Standard”. TR-42.11 is developing guidelines in the area defined by the following scope: “Revise TIA-568.3-D to include the content from TIA-568.3-D-1 Addendum 1: General Updates and any additional content deemed appropriate by formulating subcommittee. Justification: Uphold a 5 year cadence on maintenance of standard, incorporate content from published addendum, and update pertinent content to reflect the latest technological updates and capabilities.”

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.

For more information about TR-42 and how to participate in standards development with TIA, contact the Teesha Jenkins at standards@tiaonline.org.

A major function of the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) is the writing and maintenance of voluntary industry standards and specifications. These activities are carried out by the volunteer members of TIA engineering committees. On the public engineering committee pages, users will find recent meeting reports, agendas and notices for upcoming meetings, as well as links to some of the most popular standards from each committee.
