TIA issues New Broadband Coaxial Cabling and Components Standard


Arlington, VA (June 29, 2017) – The Telecommunications Industry Association, which develops standards for the information and communications technology industry, has released a new document, ANSI/TIA-568.4-D Broadband Coaxial Cabling and Components Standard. This Standard establishes performance and technical criteria for coaxial cabling system configurations for accessing and connecting their respective elements. In order to determine the requirements of a generic coaxial cabling system, performance requirements for various telecommunications services were considered.

ANSI/TIA-568.4-D was formulated under the cognizance of the TIA TR-42 Telecommunications Cabling Systems, TR-42.7 Telecommunications Copper Cabling Systems (568) subcommittee.


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

For more information about TR-42 and how to participate in standards development with TIA contact standards@tiaonline.org or Stephanie Montgomery, Vice President, Technology and Standards at smontgomery@tiaonline.org.
