ANSI/TIA 568-C.2 and TIA-492AAAD TIA Votes to Publish

At the recent TIA TR-42 meeting in Minneapolis (MN), the subcommittee for TR-42.7, Telecommunications Copper Cabling Systems, resolved comments from the second default ballot and voted to publish ANSI/TIA 568-C.2, Balanced Twisted-Pair Telecommunications Cabling and Components Standard. Now that 568-C.2 is complete, the subcommittee has begun work on TSB-155-A which will harmonize TSB-155 with the new 568-C.2. A draft was approved for ballot closing in October. A new project was requested to develop what will become ANSI/TIA-568-C.4, Broadband Coaxial Cabling and Components Standard.
TIA TR 42.12, the subcommittee for Optical Fibers and Cables, resolved the comments from the default ballot for TIA-492AAAD, Detail Specification for OM4 fiber. The resolution of the terminology issue was treated as an editorial change and the document was sent to TR-42 for publication.
The next meeting for TIA TR-42 is scheduled for November 2-6 in Jacksonville (FL).
