TIA issues New Administration Standard for Telecommunications Cabling Infrastructure


Arlington, VA (July 05, 2017) – The Telecommunications Industry Association, which develops standards for the information and communications technology industry, has released a new document, ANSI/TIA-606-C Administration Standard for Telecommunications Infrastructure. This Standard specifies administration systems for telecommunications infrastructure within buildings (including commercial, industrial, residential, and data center premises) and between buildings. This infrastructure may range in size from a building requiring a single telecommunications space (TS) and associated elements, to many TSs and associated elements in multiple campus locations. This Standard applies to administration of telecommunications infrastructure in existing, renovated, and new buildings.

ANSI/TIA-606-C was formulated under the cognizance of the TIA TR-42 Telecommunications Cabling Systems, TR-42.6 Telecommunications Infrastructure and Equipment Administration subcommittee.


TIA actively seeks participation in these projects from the user and general interest communities.
