I watch the RSS feeds from TIA and the latest one on the standards updates says TIA-568-C.3, Optical Fiber Cabling Components Standard is now available.

But yet I cannot find it anywhere? Nor can I find 1 and 2?

So, it is now available for purchase. Has anyone bought this yet? Is this OM4 at 550m?

You can test short Cat 6A links, if you've installed the right connector. This video explains why.

Here is what's happening in TIA TR 42 in regards to the 568-C series.

ANSI/TIA 568-C.0 - Generic and ANSI/TIA 568-C.1 - Commercial were approved for publication by the TR 42.1 in August. Before it is published, the documents needs to go throught the TIA and ANSI process therefore, they should be available for purchase in late december 2008/early January 2009.

ANSI/TIA 568-C2 is presently in draft mode. TR 42.7 is going to apply an aggressive schedule to hopefully have the document ready for publication approval by the end of 2009, which means to the earliest, this document should be available in early 2010.

As for ANSI/TIA 568-C.3, since I was the editor, I can tell you that it is available at this time. It can be purchase via the only way you can purchase TIA standards, meaning through www.global.ihs.com, the official TIA Standards distributor. However, when I checked, they made a mistake in the name (which I will notify TIA - it explain why you could not find it). Type in the document TIA-568-3 instead of TIA-568-C.3 and you should find it. Like I said, I will make sure TIA corrects this with IHS - therefore, once corrected, typing the proper document number should work.

As for a possible addendum 1 of 568-C.3 on OM4. At this time, there are no discussion of such addendum. I don't know where and how you got this info but at this time OM4 is not standardized in TIA TR42. However, discussion on the subject is happening at this time but no proposal for an addendum to 568-C.3 have been made.

Regards,

Julie

Hi Julie,

The addendum C.3-1 was an assumption based on the push from fiber vendors to have OM4 supported in TIA-568-C.3. I think you will agree that OM4 will be defined, it's just a question of if it is C.3-1 or C.3-2 or....
