Telecommunications Industry Association

The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) is a trade association in the US that represents about 600 telecommunications companies. It helps create universal networking and education standards for the telephony, data networking, and convergence industry. The TIA has helped develop networking standards that have been used worldwide, including:
* TIA/EIA-568-B (telecommunications cabling standards, used by nearly all voice, video and data networks).
* TIA J-STD-607 (Commercial grounding - earthing - standards)
* TIA/EIA-598- (Fiber optic color coding)

The TIA endorses sponsor of the Convergence Technologies Professional certification.

The TIA is co-owner of NXTcomm, a trade show for the telecommunications industry that is jointly owned with USTelecom(formerly co-owners of SUPERCOMM). In 2008, NXTcomm was held in Las Vegas from June 16 to July 19.

Verizon President and Chief Operating Officer Denny Strigl and Sprint Nextel President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel Hesse are the keynotes for Wednesday, June 18 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

TIA is a participating standards organization of the Global Standards Collaboration initiative.


The common basic Hayes command set was standardized as TIA-602. [ [ Standard Modem Command Sets and INFs] ]
