Cable Ready: New Leadership for TR-42
The TR-42 engineering committee of TIA develops and maintains voluntary standards for cabling infrastructure in user-owned buildings. That committee recently elected new leadership, including Henry Franc, Technology Solutions Architect at Belden, TR-42’s new vice chair. He joins TIA NOW to discuss what’s next for the TR-42 committee.
Data Centers: Ribbon Technology
Vernon Yow of Sumitomo Electric Lightwave talks about ribbon technology and how that impacts improved cabling. Yow speaks further about the applications of ribbon technology for data centers and how ultra-high-fiber-count ribbon cables meet the growing need for high fiber density in data centers.
Cabling Systems Standards
TR-42, TIA’s Engineering Committee for Cabling Systems Standards remains active as Herb Congdon, Associate VP of Standards and Technology Development at TIA, tells us what to look forward to.
What’s the Standard in 2015?
TIA is known for their work as a standards development organization in the telecom industry – and is plugging their members into what standards work will be done in the coming year. Join TIA NOW as they kick off 2015 with Stephanie Montgomery, Acting VP of Technology and Standards at TIA.
