TIA/EIA-606-A Addendum 1
•606-A (Administration) was reaffirmed in June 2007 •Extends it for up to five years, as is. •New Addendum 1 on Administration for Equipment Rooms, Computer Rooms and Data Centers approved in October 2008.
-Opening 606-A document for review in anticipation of beginning a revision project that willultimately produce TIA/EIA-606-B -*While 606-A was reaffirmed,The addendum is meant to reconcile 606-A with the TIA’s 942 data center standard; 606-A did not really consider data centers and 942 did not consider administration. The two concepts come together in Addendum 1 to 606-A (Eventually will become 606-B)
CHANGES FROM LAST REVISION
•Adopts identification scheme specified in TIA-606-AAddendum 1 •Creates new identification format for horizontal links, backbone cables and campus backbone cables as well as telecommunications outlets, equipment outlets, splices, consolidation points, and outdoor telecommunications spaces. •Administers backbone cables by pair groups or corresponding to ports. •Administration of grounding and bonding systems. •Allows existing TIA-606-A identifier formatsto continue to be used where they are already in use.
•Cable Identifiers •Space Identifiers •Termination Hardware Identifiers •Pathway Identifiers •Grounding •Marking the TS-Room •Rack labeling •110 Block Labels •Backbone Cables
Identifiers are simply labels with printed information. All of the hardware listed to the left requires labeling
•“Text onlabels should be a font without serifs, upper case, and large enough to be easily read while standing near the cabinet or rack. Text on labels shall be machine printed, and the label color shall contrast with the surface upon which they are affixed (e.g., white on a dark surface, black on a white surface).”
10.2 MECHANICAL GENERATION
•“All labels shall be printed or generated by a mechanicaldevice.”
10.1 VISIBILITY AND DURABILITY
•“The size, color, and contrast of all labels should be selected to ensure that the identifiers are easily read. Labels should be visible during the installation of and normal maintenance of the infrastructure. Labels should be resistant to the environmental conditions at the point of installation (such as moisture, heat or ultraviolet light), andshould have a design life equal to or greater than that of the labeled component.”
CABLE LABELS 5.1.5
•“Each end to be labeled within 300mm (12in) of the end of the cable jacket. This shall include each cable in the TS, at the work area and at a CP if present. “
•Labels shall be durably affixed to both ends of each cable conspicuously displayed just prior to each cable being routed into thetermination device. Label colors shall reflect cable route diversity where ever applicable.”
WORK AREA LABELS
•“Each individual telecommunications outlet or equipment outlet shall be labeled with the horizontal link identifier. Labeling to appear on the faceplate, connector, or MUTOA, in a way that clearly identifies the individual connector associated with the particularidentifier.”

4 CLASSES OF COMPLEXITY
• “An organization whose needs are served by a single Equipment
Room. The ER is the only space TS administered. There are no TR’s and no backbone cablelabeling or outside plant cabling systems to administer.
CLASS 1: Simple
Simple: Single space, usually one floor, it may include collapsed backbone The ER is the only TS administered.
