  • 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.

  • Will 5G be a platform for innovation? If so, what type of innovation can the industry expect? How will 5G open new services in new vertical markets? TIA NOW's Clarence Reynolds speaks with Mats Karlsson, Head of R&D and Portfolio at Ericsson, about creating new business opportunities with 5G technology.

  • How do we resolve the laundry list of API specs vying to be the virtualization industry standard? TIA NOW speaks with Hema Kadia, Vice President and Head of Strategy and Practice at Prodapt, about the risks and rewards of winning the API battle, and how to proceed in the meantime.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Jim Nolan, EVP of IoT Solutions & R&D at InterDigital spoke with TIA NOW about joint ventures, new applications and commercial IoT Platforms based on oneM2M standards.

  • 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.

  • Chris Greer, Senior Executive of Cyber Physical Systems at The National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST), tells TIA NOW how frameworks and common standards can enable applications in verticals like smart cities. Find out about NIST’s Global City Teams Challenge, as Greer talks about its benefits from interoperability to replicability.

  • Nicolas Damour, Senior Manager for Business Innovation and Development at Sierra Wireless, tells TIA NOW why being committed to standards is important to give consumers freedom of choice.
