While probably one the least talked about standards, and one that is often considered voluntary, the TIA-606-B labeling standard exists for a reason.
An unlabeled infrastructure results in an unmanageable mess that ultimately makes every reconfiguration and troubleshooting task a time-consuming, frustrating and costly tracing game of hunt and peck.
Maximizing productivity in today's fast-paced workplace is essential.无论是在安装新的光纤链路时，还是在排除现有网络故障时，越快找到故障的位置，您就能越快排除故障。但是当您面对一个集成了光纤、连接器和跳线的复杂网络时，这就说起来容易，做起来难了。
So your customer has decided to deploy HDBaseT for ultra high definition video displays and digital signage.If you're already experienced in deploying a copper cabling infrastructure for IP-based Ethernet applications like voice and data, you have little to worry about.
But it's still important to know the basics and best practices required for HDBaseT performance and error-free video transmission, and what's required when it comes to testing.
When it comes to testing a cabling installation, there are essentially three choices--verification, qualification and certification.
While some features overlap between test tools as you move up the hierarchical ladder from verification to certification, each type of testing answers one of the following questions to help you make the right choice.
Over the past decade, we have seen significant advancements in the capabilities of fiber optic cabling--from expanded distances to speeds reaching 40 and 100 Gig.
While fiber loss requirements are getting tighter, efforts are also underway to increase fiber bandwidth carrying capacity with reduced fiber counts--all while following the roadmap to 400 Gig.
The Count Down
While the smart people who install, test and certify network cabling plants know the importance of meeting standards performance parameters and ensuring application support, even the best of us can make mistakes that adversely impact the bottom line and customer satisfaction.
With the need for increased speed and power over Ethernet (PoE) being addressed within IEEE standards, work within TIA must follow suit as the two standards bodies work hand in hand to ensure that the applications put forth by IEEE can be adequately supported by the cabling infrastructure.
Let's take a look at some of the recent and most significant standards activity within the Subcommittee and how they relate to standards development happening within IEEE.
