The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) has published a new telecommunications systems bulletin (TSB), “Telecommunications Cabling Guidelines for Wireless Access Points,” TSB-162.

The document provides guidelines on the topology, design, installation and testing of telecommunications cabling infrastructure, in compliance with ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.1 and TIA-569-B, for supporting wireless local area networks in customer-owned premises.

TSB-162 includes the cabling between local area network equipment and wireless access points including pathways and spaces to support the cabling and wireless access points.

It was created by the TIA TR-42 Engineering Committee and released March 2006. A TSB is not a standard, but rather contains technical material that may be valuable to industry and users. Further information is available at ww.tiaonline.org.
