Sharing is the best policy.

Torque IP has been delivering ICT standards training courses to industry professionals since 2012. This enables us to provide training and mentoring opportunities. As a business we have always had a policy of sharing our knowledge and expertise with the industry and we typically do this in the form of information evenings and short training sessions.

Standards development process.
  • Initial research and development
  • Preparation of draft reports and presentations – various technologies
  • Workshop with client staff, independent consultants and industry representatives
  • Update the draft reposts post workshop
  • Publish gap analysis and update or re-write standards
  • Reporting and communications (stakeholder and project)

The long-anticipated revision of the NZ primary cabling standard – AS/NZS 3080 – has been released, bringing with it significant changes to the way ICT infrastructure is provided. These are fundamental revisions of the current standards that are applied in day to day designs, specifications and tender submissions. Once the new standards are ratified, referring to the old editions of the standards would be erroneous, unprofessional and, in some cases illegal.
