    At present some vendors are calling their instruments _CAT 5
    conformance_ testing devices. Be aware that there is an on-going
    standards process to define field testing of CAT 5 cables.  These
    standards or guidelines (currently called PN-3287) will not be
    complete until the June 1995 timeframe.

    The TIA TSB number will be TSB-67 when PN-3287 is approved.

    The standard is expected to define two accuracy levels of test 
    equipment, and provide minimum performance standards for each. 
    Current test equipment is likely to fall in the lower level. The 
    higher class (_Accuracy Level II_) is intended for subsequent 
    generations of test equipment capable of performing the 
    increasingly numerous and stringent tests now being developed.
