and Components Standard, Addendum 1: Specifications for 100 Next Generation Cabling Standard
Arlington, VA (July 14, 2016) – The Telecommunications Industry Association, which develops standards for the information and communications technology industry, has released a new document, TIA-568-C.2-1 Balanced Twisted-Pair Telecommunications Cabling and Components Standard, Addendum 1: Specifications for 100 Next Generation Cabling.
TIA-568-C.2-1 - This addendum specifies minimum requirements for shielded category 8 balanced twisted-pair telecommunications cabling (e.g. channels and permanent links) and components (e.g. cable,connectors, connecting hardware, and equipment cords) that are used up to and including the equipment outlet/connector in data centers, equipment rooms, and other spaces that need high speed applications. This addendum also specifies field test procedures and applicable laboratory reference measurement procedures for all transmission parameters.
TIA-568-C.2-1 was formulated under the cognizance of the TIA TR-42 Telecommunications Cabling Systems, TR-42.7 Telecommunications Copper Cabling Systems (568) subcommittee.
TIA actively seeks participation in these projects from the user and general interest communities.
