Enterprise Industry Standards

Setting the standards for reliable, compliant networks

Enterprise LeadershipMaking sure your network keeps pace with evolving technologies requires a strategic investment. What's good today is not necessarily so tomorrow (see, for instance: Beta tapes). You need a partner who is fully connected to industry considerations-and who designs and manufactures components that accommodate those changes.

We can help.
As a global leader developing enterprise network solutions, we actively participate in each of our industry's major standards organizations. Indeed, over the past few years, more than 30 of our team members with standards expertise attended a cumulative 60 different cabling, infrastructure, components and applications standards projects around the world, ensuring that our network solutions work seamlessly when supporting new applications.

It's an ongoing commitment to progress and innovation, where our experts share research and technology that help enterprise network infrastructures perform better and more efficiently.

The result is that, when you partner with CommScope, you're partnering with a company that helps position your network for long-term success, with solutions that feature:

  • Platform stability
  • Industry compliance
  • Open technology, deploying effectively across multiple systems
  • High reliability and quality
  • Ease of use and reduced maintenance costs

Enterprise solutions by CommScope. A standards approach that makes a difference.

IEEE Advances Innovation and Technological Excellence
IEEEThumb The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is a global organization that seeks to advance innovation and technological excellence. It covers a range of industries, including aerospace, information technology (IT), healthcare, nanotechnology and nuclear energy.
Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA)
TIALogoTH The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) represents the interests of the global information and communications technology (ICT) industry. Industry members include companies involved in telecommunications, broadband, mobile wireless, information technology, networks, cable, satellite, unified communications, and emergency communications.
The International Standards Organization and International Electrochemical Committees (ISO and IEC)
ISOIECTh The International Standards Organization (ISO) and International Electrochemical Committee (IEC) collectively work toward establishing standards for cabling. While distinct organizations, they are commonly referred to as ISO/IEC when operating as a joint technical committee.
European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC)
cenelec2 The European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC) develops European standards for electrical engineering. The committee represents the interests of 33 member countries and 13 affiliate member countries for the European marketplace. Their standards pattern those developed by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
incitsTH The InterNational Committee for Information Technology Standards (INCITS) develops standards governing the security, storage, transfer and management of information.
Multi-source agreements
AgreementTh Multi-source agreements (MSAs) are not official standards organizations. Rather, they are agreements that equipment vendors assume when developing form factors for communications interfaces.
