Arlington, VA (October 2, 2019) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) TR-42.7 engineering committee on telecommunications copper cabling Systems (568) has issued a call for interest for document ANSI/TIA-5071 titled Requirements for Field Test Instruments and Measurements for Balanced Single Twisted-Pair Cabling.
TR-42.7 is developing a standard that specifies the reporting and accuracy performance requirements of field testers for balanced single twisted-pair cabling measurements specified in ANSI/TIA-568.5 and the appropriate 42.9 document.
This standard contains methods to compare the field instrument measurements against laboratory equipment measurements specified in ANSI/TIA-568.5. Measurement accuracy based upon the assumptions for key performance parameters will be addressed.
Stakeholders may include but are not limited to designers, installers, integrators, operators of single pair ethernet networks, users, and test equipment manufacturers.
TIA is actively seeking participation in this project from the user and general interest communities.
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. Recent meeting reports, agendas and notices for upcoming meetings, as well as links to some of the most popular standards from each committee are available on TIA’s public engineering committee pages.
