BICSI-Prestige-Mbr-Logo.gifBICSI has released a new edition of the Telecommunications Distribution Methods Manual (TDMM), an industry reference manual for information transport systems, telecommunications and information communication technology (ICT) infrastructure design. 

The manual provides critical design information and best practices for today and tomorrow’s networks,  including Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS), Passive Optical Networks (PON) for within buildings and IP infrastructure for AV Systems. There’s also a new chapter on business development.

The TDMM is the basis of course and examination material for BICSI’s flagship credential, the Registered Communications Distribution Designer (RCDD).

  • Rohit Bhargava, Technical Support Manager, Middle East
  • Fernando Reyna, Field Applications Engineer
  • Ian Cathcart, Channel Manager, EMEA

“As with its predecessors, the 13th edition TDMM emphasizes recommendations for best practices drawn from experts around the world,” said BICSI President Jerry L. Bowman. “This updated edition once again provides deep reference information on the standards and codes that impact our readership. Whether the reader is a newcomer or seasoned veteran to IT infrastructure design, the 13th edition TDMM is an indispensable reference that completes any reference library.”
