The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) TR-42.11 Engineering Committee on Optical Fiber Systems (568) has issued a call for interest on two documents: 1) ANSI/TIA-568.3-E and 2) TIA-526.14-D.
Specifically, the call for interest states:
-- The TR-42.11 Committee is developing guidelines for ANSI/TIA-568.3-E initially titled Optical Fiber Cabling Component Standard on the following scope: "Revise TIA-568.3-D to include the content from TIA-568.3-D-1 Addendum 1: General Updates and any additional content deemed appropriate by formulating subcommittee. Justification: Uphold a 5-year cadence on maintenance of standard, incorporate content from published addendum, and update pertinent content to reflect the latest technological updates and capabilities."
-- The committee will also develop guidelines for document TIA-526.14-D initially titled Optical Power Loss Measurement of Installed Multimode Fiber Cable Plant as defined by the following scope: "Proposal to revise to add reference to bend insensitive MM fiber for testing with EF compliant launch cord."
TIA is actively seeking participation on these projects from the user and general interest communities. Stakeholders may include but are not limited to TR-42.1, TR-42.11, TR-42.13, IEC 86B, IEC 86C, ISO/IEC/JTC1/SC25/WG3, end-users, installers, designers of optical fiber cabling systems.
A major function of the TIA is the writing and maintenance of voluntary industry standards and specifications. These activities are carried out by the volunteer members of TIA engineering committees. Recent meeting reports, agendas and notices for upcoming meetings, as well as links to some of the most popular standards from each committee are available on TIA’s public engineering committee pages.
