In the March 2002 issue, I reported on the activity within the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) to develop a cabling system in support of building-automation systems (BAS). At the time of writing that article, the document was out for industry ballot.
In several recent columns, I discussed the process of fiber optic terminations. I examined each step in detail and shared some of the things I have learned from experience and teaching students. As they say, one learns from one’s mistakes.
