TIA Issues Call for Interest on new Project for High Performance Structured Cabling (HPSC) Applications

Stakeholders Invited to Contact TIA Regarding Participation.

Arlington VA. (June 26, 2014) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) TR-42.7 Engineering Committee on Telecommunications Copper Cabling Systems has issued a call for interest for document TSB-5019 initially titled "High Performance Structured Cabling (HPSC) Applications".

The scope of this bulletin is to identify, analyze, and recommend use cases (e.g. switch fabric architectures, End-of Row, and Top-of-Rack) for high performance structured cabling (HPSC) application environments utilizing high speed applications such as 40GBASE-T or 10GBASE-T Ethernet. These use cases can be incorporated in data center or premise designs including equipment rooms (ER), server rooms, laboratories, and high bandwidth technology spaces."

The stakeholders may include, but are not limited to: cable manufacturers; IT professionals; datacom equipment designers; datacom equipment manufacturers; PHY suppliers (Silicon); cabling system designers and installers.

TIA is actively seeking participation in these projects from the user and general interest communities.
