    TIA is putting particular emphasis on accelerating next-generation networks to support 5G, IoT and NFV technologies. These initiatives include TIA’s tower standards committee that supports the future of 5G connectivity, TIA’s cabling infrastructure committee that creates real synergies with wireless infrastructures, and TIA’s Industry Advisory Group - called oneM2M - which is integral to the IoT sector. On this Innovating Standards to tell us more is Brenda Boehm, Chief Strategy Officer and EVP of Technology and Products at TIA and Stephanie Montgomery, VP of Technology and Standards at TIA.

All Innovating Standards Videos:

  • What were some of the significant industry movements in 2017? What did we learn and how can we use that knowledge? Will legislation speed or slow the move toward 5G? And what trends should we look for next year? Industry analysts weigh in with their predictions on this edition of TIA NOW.

  • The TIA-942 data center cabling standard was recently updated with the release of 942-B, which includes a lot of important changes. John Jacobs, VP of Market Intelligence and Research at TIA, spoke with Jonathan Jew, President of J&M Consultants and Secretary of TIA’s TR-42 Cabling Systems Engineering Committee, about this update and why it's critical for those who build and manage data centers.

  • Carl Rivkin, Manager of Safety Codes and Standards at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), spoke with TIA NOW about how fuel cells act as reliable back-up power for cell towers. Rivkin focused on the environmental, safety and connectivity benefits of fuel cell technologies.

  • Two separate standards have been developed to provide greater clarity to all vested stakeholders in construction planning and implementation for communications towers. TIA's Vice President of Technology and Standards Stephanie Montgomery explains the importance of the two standards and why industry and the general public should be interested.

  • The next ANSI-TIA telecommunications physical network security standard is close to publication and is the result of over 3 years of collaborative development, amongst telecommunications standards developers and security experts. Masood Shariff, Senior Engineer Principal at CommScope spoke to TIA NOW about the document.

  • Watch Part 2 of this Telecommunications Video Series on tower safety climb systems.

  • Watch Part 1 of this Telecommunications Video Series on tower safety and work quality, featuring OSHA, American Tower, MUTI Tower Service Company and TIA's TR-14 Chair.

  • Today is the signing of the Friendship Agreement between TIA and the Project 25 Technology Interest Group (PTIG). TIA NOW spoke with the key figures signing the agreement: Del Smith, Chairman of PTIG, Stephen Nichols, Director of PTIG and Stephanie Montgomery, Vice President of Technology and Standards at TIA.

  • TIA and the Technology Access Program (TAP) of Gallaudet University recently announced a Friendship Agreement to facilitate communication regarding standards development for performance and accessibility for communications products.

  • Yes, a global organization does exist that has developed an interoperable standard for Machine-to-Machine Communications and the Internet of Things. oneM2M was founded by leading ICT standards bodies and companies from a variety of industry sectors.

  • 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.

  • As we try to reach greater speeds and capacities in data center cabling designs, what are the pros and cons of SMF vs. MMF? Patrick Van Vickle, Senior Manager of Product Design and Engineering at Sumitomo Electric Lightwave joins us in the TIA NOW studio to give us the latest on this topic.

  • TIA’s TR-42 standards committee on Commercial Buildings Telecommunications Cabling is busier than ever on a number of fronts including alignment of U.S. and international standards, the Cat 6 consortium, and new cabling standards and guidelines that support speeds up to 100Gbit/s. Join TIA NOW as we speak with Stephanie Montgomery, Sr. Director of Technology and Standards at TIA.

  • 25 years of P25 standards - creating the foundation for interoperable, digital, two-way wireless communications - is upon us, and interoperability for emergency responders has come a long way. So how far has the P25 set of standards evolved since its inception and what is the future of P25 while a national network is underway for emergency communications?
