About SPEC

Mission Statement

The Single Pair Ethernet Consortium (SPEC) of TIA represents technology leaders to accelerate the adoption of next generation Operational Technology (OT) and Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity.

SPEC participation is open to all members in good standing of the TIA. In addition, companies who are not TIA members can participate as Affiliate members.

Each member company is entitled to one voting member, however, companies may have several members attend Section meetings or participate on committees. Any representative has a choice of being on any, all or none of the section’s three committees: Standards, Communications and Membership.

 

Marketing Assessment

Participating members of the TIA SPEC pay an annual assessment to help fund communications initiatives. These activities, which are directed by the Communications Committee, include the development of white papers, case studies, trade press articles, and presentations. Companies are welcome to attend meetings without paying the assessment but are not eligible to participate in activities, or to receive materials funded by the assessment.
