TIA-942 is a standard developed by the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) to define guidelines for planning and building data centers, particularly with regard to cabling systems and network design. The standard deals with both copper and fiber optic media.

The TIA-942 specification references private and public domain data center requirements for applications and procedures such as:

  • Network architecture
  • Electrical design
  • File storage, backup and archiving
  • System redundancy
  • Network access control and security
  • Database management
  • Web hosting
  • Application hosting
  • Content distribution
  • Environmental control
  • Protection against physical hazards (fire, flood, windstorm)
  • Power management

The principal advantages of designing data centers in accordance with TIA-942 include standard nomenclature, failsafe operation, robust protection against natural or humanmade disasters, and long-term reliability, expandability and scalability.
