EIA/TIA wiring standards


EIA/TIA Wiring Standards are standards for commercial and telecommunications wiring developed by the Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) and Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA).

What is EIA/TIA Wiring Standards?

Standards for commercial and telecommunications wiring developed by the Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) and Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA). These standards are also supported by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). The EIA/TIA wiring standards actually consist of a group of standards covering different aspects of premise cabling and other wiring practices.

These standards include the following:

  • EIA/TIA 570: Residential/Light Commercial Wiring Standard 
  • EIA/TIA 568A: Commercial Building Telecommunications Cabling Standard 
  • EIA/TIA 569: Commercial Building Standard for Telecommunications Pathways and Spaces 
  • EIA/TIA 606: Design Guideline for Administration of Telecommunications Infrastructure in Commercial Buildings 
  • EIA/TIA 607: Commercial Building Grounding and Bonding Requirements for Telecommunications 

For more information, see the Web sites for the EIA and TIA listed in this entry.

TIP


When installing wiring for your network, be sure to follow the EIA/TIA standards, both for legal reasons and to ensure that your network will function as expected. Be sure also to follow any local or state building codes.

Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)

Public Key Infrastructure, also known as PKI, is a set of services that support the use of public-key cryptography in a corporate or public setting. A public key infrastructure (PKI) enables key pairs to be generated, securely stored, and securely transmitted to users so that users can send encrypted transmissions and digital signatures over distrusted public networks such as the Internet.

Digital Signature

Digital Signature is an electronic signature that you can use to sign a document being transmitted by electronic means such as e-mail. Digital signatures validate the identity of the sender and ensure that the document they are attached to has not been altered by unauthorized parties during the transmission.
