TIA issues New Structured Cabling Infrastructure Standard for Intelligent Building Systems
Arlington, VA (July 12, 2022) – The Telecommunications Industry Association, which develops standards for the information and communications technology industry, has released a new document, ANSI/TIA-862-C, Structured Cabling Infrastructure Standard for Intelligent Building Systems.
ANSI/TIA-862-C 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.
ANSI/TIA-862-C was formulated under the cognizance of the TIA TR-42 Telecommunications Cabling Systems, TR-42.1 Telecommunications Premises Telecommunications Infrastructure 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.
