BICSI recently released the 14th edition of the Telecommunications Distribution Methods Manual (TDMM).
The 14th edition of the TDMM is billed as “the definitive resource for telecommunications and ICT infrastructure design for the past 35 years. Spanning 2,000 pages, the new two-volume TDMM 14th is the foundation of ICT design for the next 20 years.”
Significant changes have been made to the previous (13th) edition to create the 14th edition, which reflect the newest trends in ICT technologies, to ensure a project is designed based on the latest standards and best practices.
Updates to the new edition include: a completely new chapter on special design considerations; new sections on disaster recovery and risk management; a new section on OM5 multimode fibre; and expanded information concerning topics of intelligent building design, 5G, DAS, WiFi-6, data centres, Power over Ethernet (PoE), the healthcare vertical, wireless networks, electronic safety and security systems, building automation, and more.
As BICSI’s flagship manual, the TDMM is known as the leading reference document for all ICT professionals designing digital infrastructure projects. It also acts as the basis for BICSI’s Registered Communications Distribution Designer (RCDD) program, the gold-standard industry certification for ICT designers. Since its inception, the TDMM has helped to certify thousands of RCDDs.
