TIA issues New Requirements for Field Instruments and Measurements for Balanced Single Twisted-Pair Cabling
Arlington, VA (July 01, 2022) – The Telecommunications Industry Association, which develops standards for the information and communications technology industry, has released a new document, ANSI/TIA-5071, Requirements for Field Instruments and Measurements for Balanced Single Twisted-Pair Cabling.
ANSI/TIA-5071 This Standard specifies the reporting and accuracy performance requirements of field testers for balanced single twisted‐pair cabling measurements specified in ANSI/TIA‐568.5 and appropriate 42.9 document. This Standard contains methods to compare the field instrument measurements against laboratory equipment measurements specified in ANSI/TIA‐568. Measurement accuracy based upon the assumptions for key performance parameters is addressed.
ANSI/TIA-5071 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 email@example.com.
TIA actively seeks participation in these projects from the user and general interest communities.
