Cabling Standard Subcommittee Work-Hand in Hand with IEEE

With the need for increased speed and power over Ethernet (PoE) being addressed within IEEE standards, work within TIA must follow suit as the two standards bodies work hand in hand to ensure that the applications put forth by IEEE can be adequately supported by the cabling infrastructure.

Let's take a look at some of the recent and most significant standards activity within the Subcommittee and how they relate to standards development happening within IEEE.

What's New with Versiv Version 4,6 Build 2?

We repeatedly try to drive home the need to keep your tester up to date with the latest firmware, and for good reason. Not only do we want to make sure you don't miss out on the latest features that can help you test faster and more accurately, but as standards change, so must your tester.

SmartLoop Technology Just Got Smarter and Faster

Двунаправленное тестирование оптоволоконных линий для сертификации уровня 2 (OTDR) не только заложено в отраслевых стандартах, но и требуется для сохранения гарантии большинства производителей. Это также единственный способ узнать фактические общие потери канала. Это связано с тем, что измерение потерь разъемов и соединений оптоволокна, а также общих потерь канала зависит от направления. Testing a fiber link in one direction can give you different results then testing the same fiber link in the opposite direction.

Save Time and Money with LinkWare Live

Предположим, что сейчас вечер, и ваша команда только что закончила работу. Now it’s time to gather up the testers and head back to the office with the results. But if that's your white box truck back there sitting in miles of traffic, how much will it cost you?

Developments on Fiber Connector End Face Inspection

The performance of an installed optical fiber link hinges on the condition of the connector end faces. Test suppliers have been pushing end face inspection for good reason – most service calls are due to problems with connectors. Standards bodies are busy making improvements to their documents on visual inspection. This work is being done in subcommittee 25 working group 3, the working group responsible for developing standards for customer premises cabling. Recent developments on end face inspection is the topic of this blog.

Cabling Mistakes #2 and #3: Neglecting Marginal Test Results and Parameters

While the smart people who install, test and certify network cabling plants know the importance of meeting standards performance parameters and ensuring application support, even the best of us can make mistakes that adversely impact the bottom line and customer satisfaction.

Let’s take a look at the #2 and #3 Dumb Things that smart people do when testing network cabling systems— Neglecting to agree upon marginal test results upfront in writing and failing to specify all test parameters to be tested.

Cabling Mistakes #8: Using BIMMF Test Cords and Common Mandrel

While the smart people who install, test and certify network cabling plants know the importance of meeting standards performance parameters and ensuring application support, even the best of us can make mistakes that adversely impact the bottom line and customer satisfaction.

Let’s take a look at the #8 Dumb Thing that smart people do when testing network cabling systems— Using BIMMF (Bend Insensitive Multimode Fiber) test cords and a common mandrel.

Understand ISO/IEC 11801 - Generic Cabling for Customer Premises

ISO/IEC 11801, Information technology – Generic Cabling for Customer Premises is being overhauled. The last version, edition 2,2 was published in 2011. In that version ISO/IEC 11801 was one all-inclusive document. Since then, because of its size, the standard has been divided into six parts:

Get Back to Cabling Basics If Anything Goes Wrong

How we communicate and share information today is all done via networks, and every day our world becomes more connected. The Internet of Things (IoT) is placing more IP-based devices on the network than ever before--from digital displays and LED lighting, to security apparatus and building automation systems.
