have struggled with issues relating to the use of Ethernet networks for the transmission and interconnectivity of fire alarm systems for a number of years, says Wayne Moore in the latest issue of +NFPA Journal+. To help resolve those issues, the Correlating Committee for Signaling Systems for the Protection of

Life and Property established a task group, which recently submitted the result of its work as a proposal that would help bring the fire alarm and

emergency communications industry closer to using interconnectivity

already used by most other microprocessor-based systems. For more on these changes, read the Wayne's column "Shared Paths" in the September/October issue of Journal.
