TIA Issues a Call for Interest on a New Project for Understanding Duplex and Single Row Fiber Polarity

Stakeholders Invited to Contact TIA Regarding Participation.

Arlington VA. (June 02, 2015) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) TR-42.11 Engineering Committee on Optical Systems (568) has issued a call for interest for document TSB-5040 initially titled Understanding Duplex and Single Row Fiber Polarity. TR-42.11 is developing guidelines for this Telecommunications Systems Bulletin (TSB) which provides guidance on polarity with respect to optical components defined in ANSI/TIA-568, e.g. duplex fiber optic connectors and single-row multi fiber optic connectors, therefore giving readers clarity to their interactions and channel connectivity. This TSB will complement the standards listed below. • ANSI/TIA-568-C.0 Generic Telecommunications Cabling for Customer Premises and its addenda. • ANSI/TIA-568-C.3 Optical Fiber Cabling Component Standard and its addenda.

The stakeholders may include, but are not limited to: Manufacturers, end-users, installers, designers of optical fiber cabling systems.

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

For more information about TR-42 and how to participate in standards development with TIA, contact Germaine Palangdao at standards@tiaonline.org.

A major function of the Telecommunications Industry Association (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. On the public engineering committee pages, users will find recent meeting reports, agendas and notices for upcoming meetings, as well as links to some of the most popular standards from each committee. TIA is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Visit tiaonline.org.
