TINA-C stands for Telecommunication Information Networking Architecture Consortium. It was an attempt (started in 1992) by several actors in the telecommunication world to define, design and realize a software architecture for the telecommunication infrastructure. The consortium has defined a number of specifications and has organized several experiments and demos.

TINA-C is partly based on the Advanced Networked Systems Architecture (ANSA) standard developed by Andrew Herbert.

From 1993-1997 TINA specifications where developed by a core team of experts residing in Red Bank, New Jersey. Core team members were employees of the member companies assigned to work for the consortium. From 1998-2000 the consortium consisted of a Technical Architecture Board that met frequently, with work being conducted in several working groups.

The consortium disbanded in 2000.
