Understanding the customers’ business model and reaching a healthy consensus between the push of technology (e.g., IoT and 5G) is required in data center design and planning to meet the demand for ubiquitous coverage and the demand of data anytime, anywhere. This presentation will provide an overview of data center design, the changes in the upcoming revision of ANSI/TIA-942 Telecommunications Infrastructure Standard for Data Centers, and review use cases in the implementation of ANSI/TIA-942.

About TR-42 Telecommunications Cabling Systems Committee:
The TR-42 Telecommunications Cabling Systems Committee develops and maintains voluntary telecommunications standards for telecommunications cabling infrastructure in user-owned buildings, such as commercial buildings, residential buildings, homes, data centers and industrial buildings. The generic cabling topologies, design, distances and outlet configurations as well as specifics for these locations are addressed.
The ANSI/TIA-942 Telecommunications Infrastructure Standard for Data Centers is developed by the TR-42.1 Generic and Premises Cabling Subcommittee. TR-42.1 develops and maintains cabling standards for generic customer-owned telecommunications networks. These standards are intended to specify open systems designed to support a wide variety of voice, data, video, and other low voltage, power-limited applications. TR-42.1 also develops and maintains telecommunications cabling standards for premises networks such as commercial buildings, data centers, building automation, etc. This Subcommittee specifies cabling system topology, architecture, design, installation, testing and performance requirements.
