TIA issues New Balanced Single Twisted-pair Telecommunications Cabling and Components Standard
Arlington, VA (March 8, 2022) – The Telecommunications Industry Association, which develops standards for the information and communications technology industry, has released a new document, ANSI/TIA-568.5, Balanced Single Twisted-pair Telecommunications Cabling and Components Standard.
ANSI/TIA-568.5 is a single balanced twisted-pair cabling and components standard to provide specifications for cables, connectors, cords, links and channels using 1-pair connectivity in non-industrial premises telecommunications networks. The standard will focus on MICE1 environments and will include cabling and component performance requirements and test procedures, reliability requirements and test procedures, as well as guidelines for adaptations to four pair cabling.
ANSI/TIA-568.5 was formulated under the cognizance of the TIA TR-42 Telecommunications Cabling Systems, TR-42.7 Telecommunications Copper Cabling Systems subcommittee.
For more information about TR-42 and how to participate in standards development with TIA, contact Cheryl Thibideau at firstname.lastname@example.org.
TIA actively seeks participation in these projects from the user and general interest communities.
