In a time of technological transformation, connectivity is the foundation upon which modern innovation is built. TIA's Technology Programs aim to enable the next generation of connected technology.

TIA’s Technology Programs bring together member companies and other stakeholders across a variety of industries impacted by communications technologies. TIA facilitates technology-based communities of interest that convene to solve unique challenges, shape solutions and provide strategic guidance to enable next-generation products and services across markets. They include:

Affiliated Groups

TIA Fiber Optics Technology Consortium
Formed in 1993, TIA’s Fiber Optics Technology Consortium (FOTC), convenes fiber manufacturers, cablers and electronics manufacturers and serves as a resource for users and network designers who seek reliable and current information about the deployment of fiber in enterprise networks.

The FOTC discusses tacking industry issues to help grow the market for fiber optic solutions. It allows companies to have a greater voice in the industry and to aide in influencing the development of fiber optic standards along with the acceptance of architectures.

FOTC participation is open to all members in good standing of TIA. In addition, companies who are not TIA members can participate as Affiliate members.

TIA Single Pair Ethernet Consortium
The Single Pair Ethernet Consortium (SPEC) of TIA represents technology leaders committed to accelerating the adoption of next generation Operational Technology (OT) and Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity using SPE Technologies.

oneM2M is the leading global standardization body for machine-to-machine (M2M) and the Internet of Things (IoT). It was established through an alliance of standards organizations to develop a single horizontal platform for the exchange and sharing of data among all applications.

The purpose and goal of oneM2M is to develop technical specifications which address the need for a common M2M Service Layer that can be readily embedded within various hardware and software, and relied upon to connect the myriad of devices in the field with M2M application servers worldwide.

TIA is a founding member and Partner Type 1, providing strategic direction to oneM2M and can admit its members to become members of oneM2M.
