AUSTRALIAN STANDARDS TECHNICAL COMMITTEE CT-001 HAS AGREED TO SUBMIT PROJECT PROPOSALS TO AMEND AS/NZS3080 AND SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS

CT-001 Australian Standards committee meeting held on the 19th October 2016 has agreed to the Standards and Technical reports to be submitted for project approval to Standards Australia for adoption as Australian and New Zealand standards and technical reports.

The primary changes are driven by the breakup of ISO/IEC 11801 into six parts which Australia is planning to pick up with a new descriptor in line with the international document (11801 in place of 3080), the introduction of category 8 (Class I & II) in support of 25 and 40 Gbit/s, new earthing in support of telecommunication systems (and shielded cabling), Distributed Building Services, remote power feeding and test and mitigation techniques in support of the proposed changes.

While every proposal is individual the following criteria is considered relevant for each adoption to ensure there is a net benefit for adoption of any specific document. The consideration falls into six broad categories.

·         PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY  

·         SOCIAL AND COMMUNITY IMPACT  

·         ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

·         COMPETITION

·         ECONOMIC IMPACT.

·         STANDARDS AND LEGISLATION

Information on Standards Australia’s Guide to Net Benefit can be found on the Standards Australia website (GU 103)

Projects to be included in the submission

·         ISO/IEC 11801-1 Information technology -- Generic cabling for customer premises -- Part 1: General requirements has been recommended to be a modified adoption so that the existing AS/NZS annexes content is retained

·         ISO/IEC 11801-2 Information technology – Generic cabling for customer premises – Part 2: Office premises

·         ISO/IEC 11801-3 Information technology – Generic cabling for customer premises – Part 3: Industrial premises

·         ISO/IEC 11801-3 Information technology – Generic cabling for customer premises – Part 3: Industrial premises

·         ISO/IEC 11801-4 Information technology – Generic cabling for customer premises – Part 4: Homes

·         ISO/IEC 11801-5 Information technology – Generic cabling for customer premises – Part 5: Data centres

·         ISO/IEC 11801-6 Information technology – Generic cabling for customer premises – Part 6: Distributed Building Services

·         ISO/IEC 14763-3 Information technology -- Implementation and operation of customer premises cabling -- Part 3: Testing of optical fibre cabling (Amendments 1 and 2 to be adopted)

·         ISO/IEC 14763-4 Information technology -- Implementation and operation of customer premises cabling -- Part 4: Measurement of End-to-End (E2E)-Links

·         ISO/IEC 61935-1 – Specification for the testing of balanced and coaxial information technology cabling - Part 1: Installed balanced cabling as specified in ISO/IEC 11801 and related standards (to be an identical adoption later once revised with Cat 8 cable specs)

·         ISO/IEC 61935-2 –Specification for the testing of balanced and coaxial information technology cabling - Part 2: Cords as specified in ISO/IEC 11801 and related standards (to be an identical adoption later once revised with Cat 8 cable specs)

·         1ISO/IEC TR 11801-9904 Information technology -- Generic cabling systems for customer premises -- Part 9904: Guidelines for the use of installed cabling to support 2,5GBASE -T and 5GBASE -T applications (current stage – CD ballot has closed)

·         ISO/IEC TR 29125 Information technology -- Telecommunications cabling requirements for remote powering of terminal equipment (current stage – CD ballot has closed)

·         ISO/IEC 30129 Information technology -- Telecommunications bonding networks for buildings and other structures.

·         The end to end link technical report is under consideration for adoption but due to the potentially misleading title which may indicate the document is of a higher status than it is, the document might not gain the necessary support for adoption.

All applications are dependent on the demonstration of Australian stakeholder organisations consultation and support. To that end if organisations, wish to support this proposal please send your support to standardsdev@vti.net.au so that your support can be included within the project proposal.

 

Murray Teale (Chair of CT-001-Technical Director of VTI Services) is currently drafting the project proposal and is actively seeking industry support to address industry engagement obligations.
