TIA Issues Call for Interest on new Project for Structured Cabling Infrastructure Standard for Intelligent Building Systems
Stakeholders Invited to Contact TIA Regarding Participation.
Arlington VA. (July 31, 2020) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) TR-42.1 Engineering Committee on Premises Telecommunications Infrastructure has issued a call for interest for document ANSI/TIA-862-C initially titled “Structured Cabling Infrastructure Standard for Intelligent Building Systems”. TR-42.1 is developing guidelines in the area defined by the following scope: “This Standard specifies requirements for intelligent building system cabling infrastructure including cabling topology, architecture, design and installation practices, test procedures, and components. The cabling infrastructure specified by this Standard is intended to support a wide range of systems, particularly those that utilize or can utilize IP-based infrastructure. This revision will include the contents of Addendum 1 to ANSI/TIA-862-B; modifications needed due to the recent revision of ANSI/TIA-568.0; and the inclusion of single-pair cabling as specified in ANSI/TIA-568.5.”
The stakeholders may include, but are not limited to: Designers; installers; systems integrators; equipment manufacturers; consultants; contractors; integrators; building owners; building managers; end users.
TIA is actively seeking participation in these projects from the user and general interest communities.
