  ANSI/TIA-606-B WHITE PAPER  2 White Paper:   TIA-606-B Understanding the new updated standard. The srcinal TIA-606-A was designed to identify and record the general administration, but did not address the specific needs of the data center design and installation. TIA-606-A was just reaffirmed back in 2007. The TIA-606-A Addendum 1 was published in 2008. The addendum reconciled the 606-A with the TIA’s 942 data center standard. The current 606-A did not really consider data centers and the 942 did not consider administration. The two concepts came together in Addendum 1 to the 606-A. The development of the ANSI/TIA-606-B combined the TIA-606-A and the Addendum 1 while harmonizing with the requirements of the ISO/IEC TR14763-2-1. Labeling is a key factor in the installation and maintenance of an efficient and professional installation. The 606 standard continues to expand and address how and where to identify key components of Information Transport System (ITS).The new 606-B standard not only services the data center, but also commercial, residential, industrial and healthcare facilities. It now establishes guidelines for owners, end users, manufacturers, consultants, contractors, designers, installers, and facilities administrators involved in the administration of the telecommunications infrastructure. In addition, by harmonizing with ISO/IEC TR14763-2-1, the updated standard can be implemented internationally. The new standard is meant to increase the value of the system owner’s investment by reducing labor costs associated with maintaining complex infrastructure systems, which results in extending the useful economic life of the system and by providing effective service to the users in a variety of industries, markets and international countries. ANSI/TIA-606-B is designed to be a generic labeling standard that applies to all types of premises. The standard is backward compatible with the legacy ANSI/TIA/EIA-606-A Addendum 1 and is compatible with the international standard ISO/IEC TR14763-2-1 identifiers. BACKGROUND  American National Standards Institute (ANSI)Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA)Electrical Industries Alliance (EIA)International Standards Organization (ISO)International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC)  3 White Paper:   TIA-606-B Understanding the new updated standard. CHANGES FROM THE LAST REVISION 1. Adopts identification scheme specified in TIA-606-A Addendum 1.2. Allows existing TIA-606-A identifier formats to continue to be used where they are already in use. NOTE: An identifier is simply the “printed” text that will appear on a label as related to the standard. 3. Harmonized with ISO/IEC 14763-2-1.4. Creates new identification format for Cabling Subsystem 1 link identifiers (Horizontal links), Cabling Subsystem 2 and 3 links (Backbone cables) as well as telecommunications outlets, equipment outlets, splices, consolidation points and outdoor telecommunication spaces.  NOTE: In order to be generic to all types of premises, terminology was adopted from the TIA-568-C.O. standard in which Cabling Subsystem 1 is now what was commonly referred to as the “Horizontal Link”. The (1) does not mean anything in particular except to differentiate Cabling Subsystem 1 links from Cabling Subsystem 2 and 3 links which we commonly referred to as “Cross Connects” or “Backbone” cables. Campus cabling has its own cabling separate from the cabling subsystem 2 and 3 links, which are the 2 layers of backbone cabling allowed in premises cabling. The standard allows one level of cross connection in Cabling Subsystem 1 and two levels of cross connection in Cable Subsystem 2 and 3 cabling. Clause 10.2.1 The language also makes the standard more generic in that it not only can service the data center, but can also service commercial, residential, industrial and medical facilities. 5. Extends administration to all inter-building telecommunications cabling.6. Creates new identifiers for telecommunications outlets, equipment outlets, splices, consolidation points and outdoor telecommunication spaces (maintenance holes, pedestals, hand holes, etc.).7. Administers Cabling Subsystem 2 and 3 links by pair groups, corresponding to ports (pairs, strands and grouping identifiers) rather than copper pairs or single fibers. See clause 6.1.2.8. Administration of grounding and bonding systems beyond the TMGB and TGB.9. Provides information on implementing automated infrastructure management systems.  4 White Paper:   TIA-606-B Understanding the new updated standard. CLASSES The standard still breaks out the criterion by classes of administration. CLASS 1  = Locations served by a single Equipment Room (ER) This ER is the only Telecommunications Space (TS) administered whereas there are no Telecommunication Rooms (TRs) and no Cabling Subsystem 2 and 3 cabling or outside plant cabling systems to administer. CLASS 2  = Fulfils the administration needs of a single building that are served by multiple Telecommunications Room (TR)swith one or more TR’s within a single building. This includes all the elements of a class 1 system plus identifiers for Cabling Subsystem 2 and 3 cabling, multi-element bonding and grounding systems and fire stopping. CLASS 3  = Serves a campus environment with multiple buildings and building pathways, spaces, and outside plant elements. CLASS 4  = Attends the needs of a multi-site (multi-campus) administration.There are slight differences in requirements depending on what level is administered. In a Class 1 system, for example, the floor and room number do not need to be identified since there is only one room to manage. Obviously, as the complexity of the system increases, additional identifiers are needed. In Class 3 and 4 systems there are added requirements, such as building and campus identifiers, outside plant and inter-campus elements such as wide area network connections. THE BASICS The basic premise of the TIA-606-B compliant data center implementation is actually very simple and can be broken down using a few common examples. A typical patch panel and port identifier might be as follows: 1A.AD02-40:02 1A. = Floor 1, room AAD02 = The grid location within the data center for a particular rack or cabinet-40 = A patch panel located 40 rack units from the bottom of that rack or cabinet:02 = A specific port within the patch panel located at AD02-40. (This can also be a range of ports 01-24 as example)Optionally, we can remove the space location to the front of this identifier. If we are on floor 1, space A, and this is the only space, there is no need to include that portion on the printed identifier. The actual printed identifier might look as follows: AD02-40:02 Since we are harmonizing to the ISO/IEC TR 14763-2-1, we can optionally add a “+” sign which specifies that the next portion of the identifier is a location aspect. The “+” sign only needs to appear in the records section and not on the actual label.+AD02-40:02An “=” in front of an identifier specifies a function aspect (Example: = XO for telecommunications outlet).
