Network Cabling Standard
networ cabling standard
  • ISO (International Standardization Organization)
  • TIA (Telecommunication Industry Association)
  • EIA (Electronic Industries Alliance)
  • IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers)

In 1991, TIA/ EIA , publish first version of Commercial Building Telecommunication Cabling Standard know as TIA/ EIA-568

ISO 11801, Generic Customer Premises Cabling Standard is an international standard based on TIA/ EIA-568

There are related standards as European Standards EN 50173

  • Define how to lay the cables
  • Define how to terminate the cable
  • Define how to structure the cable
Cabling Structured
