TIA 568 C.0 and C.1

TIA decided to split TIA-568-B.1 standard to two separate parts – C.0 and C.1.

TIA-568-C.0 – Generic Telecommunications Cabling for Customer Premises (2009)

TIA announced publishing a new standard labeled TIA-568-C.0 – it serves as a base for new standards, as it takes the information duplicated in the TIA-568 Standards Series along with common information that was in the TIA-568 Series and puts them into one place together. Another important aspect of TIA-568-C.0 is that it is a base line reference and is a standard that can be used if there is no existing standard that covers the type of premises being working on.

TIA-568-C.1 – Commercial Builing Telecommunications Cabling Standard (2009)

This standards builds on information contained in TIA-568-C.0 and contains appropriate allowances and exceptions to the application of TIA-568-C.0 that are specific to office-oriented commercial building cabling. The purpose of TIA-568-C.1 is to enable the planning and installation of a structured cabling system for commercial buildings.
