We work with TIA to ensure global network security. We collaborate on supply chain security optimization and drive global adoption of IoT solutions to support smart buildings and data centers. Only through collaboration between industry, governments and associations can we ensure IoT networks’ global quality and security.

Cybersecurity and Supply Chain Security Standard

The first TIA 900 global supply chain security standard.

SCS 9001: The World’s First ICT Specific Cybersecurity and Supply Chain Security Standard

Security is not a product, it’s a process. SCS 9001 is a process-based standard, built on a quality management system (QMS). Companies benefit from assured consistent security across all products and services by using SCS 9001 certified suppliers.

Smart Building Assessment Program

Introducing sprie, the first smart building assessment program endorsed by the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA).

SPIRE: Smart Building Assessment Program

The SPIRE smart building assessment and rating program helps evaluate smart building performance and technologies. It was developed with the combined working experience of TIA members and UL. SPIRE is based on TIA’s transparent, industry-driven framework aimed at enhancing smart building performance and occupant experience.

Data Center Infrastructure Standard

The TIA-442 edge data center has been officially announced for full release by the Telecommunications Industry Association.

TIA-942: Data Center Infrastructure Standard

The TIA-942 certification program enables data centers to be reviewed and certified to ensure they conform to the ANSI/TIA-942 standard. Ensuring data centers meet these globally recognized requirements provides greater assurance to customers and stakeholders.

The program includes:

  • A worldwide listing of TIA-942 certified data centers
  • TIA-942 licensed audit companies that provide certification services
  • Information and training for companies and individuals interested in becoming a certified auditor or consultant
