In fact, the SCS (Structured Cable Systems) abbreviation has already become so widely-spread that it even does not require special explanations for many computer users. Hence, many people consider the given term as a telecommunication building infrastructure. In other words, SCS is considered to be a field, which is used for transmitting feeble current signals within various residential constructions, offices and industrial buildings.
This standardized background of the local computer and phone systems continues to win the popularity due to the following significant advantages: universality, a convenient exploitation and reliability. It should be said that the success of the given technology depends on organizations, which use and develop SCS and various standardization organizations.
It is known that a lot of U.S., European and International standardization organizations have been involved in the process of SCS standards development. It is not a secret that such organizations as the Electronic industry association and Electronic industry data exchange group also play a big role in the given process.
The Electronic industry association is considered to be a membership-based organization, which was established in Adelaide, South Australia in January 1998. Firstly, the main aim of the given organization was suggested to be the active development of the electronic industry of the South Australia, but then it managed to become one of the leading standardization organizations.
The technical and coordinating committees of the Electronic industry association develop the standards together. The companies, which these committees usually represent are not always the association's members. Thus, the accepted documents are suggested to be the results of agreements of interested specialists, which reflect the experience in the given field.
In 1998, the telecommunication department of the Electronic industry association became an independent organization - TIA (the Telecommunication industry association). Therefore, having become independent, TIA continues to effect the activity on the standardization together with the Electronic industry association. These organizations are usually presented as ANSI/TIA/EIA. ANSI/TIA/EIA reconsider the majority of standards each five years. As a result, the standards can be approved, added or changed.
The International standardization organization (ISO) and the International electrotechnical commission (IEC) have created a single standardization organ, which is widely admitted all over the World. As we can see, the national organizations - the members of ISO and IEC actively take part in the standards development process, closely cooperating with various technical committees. It should be emphasized that other international, governmental and nongovernmental organizations also take part in the given process.
In general, the international standards have to meet social interests and to eliminate the misunderstanding between producers and consumers, providing a universal quality of production and taking into account its availability and correct usage at the same time.
