TIA-942 Assessments


TIA-942 is the Telecommunications Industry Association's standard for Data Centre Infrastructure. The latest version is: TIA-942 Aug 2013.


The standard describes four Tier ratings for various degrees of data centre reliability. The Tier ratings address the data centre's Archhitecture, Telecommunications, Electrical and Mechanical characteristics.


Should your business require Tier rating compliance for your Data Centre, as a globally recognized accreditation body, Ingenium can undertake the accreditation process and provide a  Certified Tier 3 or Tier 4 for your facility.


We advise however, that accreditation and certification of your data centre is a comprehensive and extensive process and is usually only justified for the largest organisations.


Ingenium provide TIA-942 Certification and Assessment Services.



If you are proposing to build a data centre that is intended to comply with a particular TIA-942 Tier rating, Ingenium recommends consultation and design reviews during the design process. Without scrutiny of the design by subject matter experts prior to the commencement of building, it is unlikely to meet compliance and achieve the objective of a higher Tier Rating.
