April 1, 1998

A poll of the Telecommunications Industry Association`s (tia`s) TR-41.8.1 working group failed to provide the mt-rj small-form connector with the two-thirds majority necessary to include it in the tia/eia-568b Commercial Building Telecommunications Cabling Standard. The mt-rj--the only small-form connector in the running to challenge the SC connector called out in tia/eia-568a--received 59% of the vote of those polled in February. The decision breathes new life into the marketing efforts of competing small-form connectors, including 3M`s Volition VF-45, Lucent`s LC, Panduit`s OptiJack, and the sc/dc from ibm and Siecor. The mt-rj was put forth by a team comprising amp Inc., Fujikura, Hewlett-Packard, Siecor, and US Conec.
