The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) and BICSI have signed a cooperation agreement that the two sides say is intended to formalize a long-standing relationship that has been a cornerstone of the industry for many years.

“This will jump start a fresh approach to our relationship with BICSI that will enhance member services for both organizations,” said TIA President Matthew Flanigan.

“TIA will continue to be a home for BICSI members to develop critical standards for our industry and both organizations will work toward finding solutions to our industry’s challenges.”

BICSI president John Bakowski said that just like there is a convergence in network design and services, the relationship with TIA is a convergence of standards development.

BICSI president-elect Ed Donelan added that there has always been an industry need to have a qualified and skilled workforce for the installation and maintenance of information transportation networks.

“BICSI and TIA will drive increased awareness of (our) accreditation programs,” he said.
