TIA Issues Revised Specifications for Temperature and Humidity Requirements in Telecommunications Spaces  

Arlington, VA (October 26, 2016) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), the leading association representing the manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech communications networks that, develops voluntary standards for the information and communications technology (ICT) industry, today released a new document, ANSI/TIA-569-D-1 Telecommunications Pathways and Spaces: Addendum 1 – Revised Temperature and Humidity Requirements for Telecommunications Spaces.

ANSI/TIA-569-D-1 specifies new temperature and humidity requirements and recommendations for telecommunications infrastructure to harmonize with the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Thermal Guidelines for Data Processing Environments.

ANSI/TIA-569-D-1 was developed under the guidance of TIA’s Engineering Committee TR-42 for Telecommunications Cabling Systems, and subcommittee TR-42.3 for Commercial Building Telecommunications Pathways and Spaces.

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