Why use thelatest labellingstandards?Effective cable labelling helps you addvalue to your operations with organisedinstallations that you can take pridein. Keeping up with best practicescan benefit your company and yourcustomers with increased efficiency,profitability and customer satisfaction.Properly labelled systems benefit allof us - installers and contractors, ITtechnicians, owners and businesses.The data explosion - Labelling hasbecome far more important in recentyears with the rise in data centergrowth and implementation of TIAlabelling standards, including the latestTIA-606-C standard.3

Here today, gone tomorrow Network structure is never static and isalways changing to keep up with newtechnology and increased bandwidthrequirements. Cables placed today willbe replaced tomorrow.The wireless world needs to bewired - As we move to a “wireless”world, the amount of cabling in facilitieswill increase as more devices areconnected and dated systems areupgraded.An investment worth making - Whilelabelling is only one part of a successfulstructured cabling or data centerinstallation, it plays an important role inensuring maximum uptime and auditcompliance for your customers.75%of data moving rightnow is generatedby machines andbuilding automation.4

A brief history of theTIA-606 labelling standardIn 2002, the Telecommunications Industry Association(TIA), which develops standards for the information andcommunications technology industry, set the first voluntaryTIA-606-A standard.This established a minimum level of information that shouldbe included on cable labels. It defined a labelling standardthat maps a cable precisely to the floor, telecom room,and patch panel position or block position on which it’sterminated. It included both colour-coded and alphanumericguidelines for all networking and structured cablingcomponents, which set it apart as a logical and sensiblesolution.The move to TIA-606-B. In 2012, the TIA updated thestandard to TIA-606-B, which included specificationsfor labelling and administrative best practices acrossall networked systems classes. It covered more facilityclasses of every size and type, from small office buildingsto large commercial enterprises, corporate campuses anddata centers, and added more granularity to identificationlocations within each of these facilities.In July 2017, the standard was updated to its current “C”revision.5

The latest standard:TIA-606-CThe TIA-606-C Standard specifies administration systems fortelecommunications infrastructure within buildings (includingcommercial, industrial, residential, and data center premises)and between buildings. This infrastructure may range in sizefrom a building requiring a single telecommunication space(TS) and associated elements, to many TSs and associatedelements in multiple campus locations. The standard appliesto administration of telecommunications infrastructure inexisting, renovated, and new buildings.Colour codingColour coding labels is recommended, but not required.Compliant coding may be accomplished using colour labelsor colour bands.6

What’s new in TIA-606-C?Much of the TIA-606-B standard still applies within theTIA-606-C standard, but there are some new additions andupdates.Annex D: Annex D provides additional guidelines for theadministration of cabling supporting remote powering,including a cable bundle identifier scheme. It’s an importantdevelopment because it allows automatic infrastructuremanagement systems from different manufacturers to worktogether.Changes to the identifier scheme fortelecommunications grounding and bonding systemelements: These changes specify the use of termscompatible with ISO/IEC 30129. Legacy terms used inversions of the TIA-607 standard earlier than revision C alsowill be allowed.7It’s an importantdevelopmentbecause itallows automaticinfrastructuremanagementsystemsfrom differentmanufacturersto work together.

Identifier schemes for telecommunicationsbonding and grounding system elementschanged to align with TIA-607-C: BCT (bonding conductor for telecommunications)changed to TBC (telecommunications bondingconductor) RGB (rack grounding busbar) changed to RBB (rackbonding busbar) GE (grounding equalizer) changed to BBC (backbonebonding conductor) TGB (telecommunications grounding busbar) changed toSBB (secondary bonding busbar) TMGB (telecommunications main grounding busbar)changed to PBB (primary bonding busbar)Additional updates: TIA-606-B-1 content replaced with a reference to TIA5048 (adaption of ISO/IEC 18598) The preference for an ISO/IEC TR 14763-2-1 compatibleformat for new administration systems was removed Table summarising variables used in identifier formatsadded8

Why follow TIA-606-C?Makes your job easier - Following the standard takes theguesswork out of creating labels in the office or on the fly.Improves your efficiency - Reduce time spent creatinglabels to streamline your entire installation and labellingprocess.Best practice - TIA-606-C is the industry standard, makingthe network easier to follow for your customer’s current andfuture team members.The mark of professionalism - Clear, durable labellingaccording to TIA-606-C standards is a sure sign of yourexperience and expertise.Ensures compliance with warranties - Some cablewarranties are dependent upon successful labellingand documentation being turned in directly to the cablemanufacturer as proof of system installation. Since cablewarranties are a key factor in many buyers’ purchasingdecisions, successfully certifying a system by supplyingthis type of information to the manufacturer is extremelyimportant.Improves record keeping - The standard requires youto link a record for each identifier that is printed on alabel, allowing your customer to have a well-documentedinfrastructure that can be understood and managed byanyone responsible for making moves, adds or changes.9Following the standardtakes the guessworkout of creating labels inthe office or on the fly.

Increases customer satisfaction - Customers appreciatethat their projects, whether large or small, are installed in fullcompliance with all applicable standards. From the buildingowner’s perspective, a non-labeled plant becomes a liabilitybecause they can’t get competent maintenance work donecost-effectively. It also reduces the time and cost associatedwith identifying and tracing a cable when problems occur orwhen a move, add or change is required.Creates new business opportunities - Installerssometimes turn down repair and maintenance bids becausecable tracing is labour-intensive and time-consuming.Adopting TIA-606-C standards makes it easier for you tobid competitively on future jobs when expansion occurs ormaintenance is needed.Reduces liability - Future maintenance workers canperform repairs, installation updates and upgrades in a safer,more secure way, with a reduced risk of human error.Faster troubleshooting - Being able to identify informationabout cables quickly makes it faster and easier totroubleshoot issues.Brady can support you with any of your identificationchallenges.
