The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) TR-42.7 Engineering Committee on Telecommunications Copper Cabling Systems (568) on Mar. 24 issued a call for interest for document TIA-1152-A, initially titled “Requirements for Field Test Instruments and Measurements for Balanced Twisted-Pair Cabling.”

Per a TIA statement, TR-42.7 is developing guidelines in the area defined by the following scope: “Revise ANSI/TIA-1152-2009 as determined in TIA TR-42.7, incorporating new specifications and other information as required to support field testing of cabling described in ANSI/TIA-568-C.2-1.”

Per TIA, stakeholders for the project may include, but are not limited to: field tester manufacturers; test equipment manufacturers; structured cabling products manufacturers; and structured cabling installers.

TIA is actively seeking participation in the project from the user and general interest communities. For more information about TR-42 and how to participate in standards development with TIA, contact Cheryl Thibideau at [email protected].
