Standards Update - Generic Cabling

 

Friday 24th May 2019 saw the superseding of a number of long-standing standards associated with generic cabling for customer cabling based on the ISO/IEC 11801.x series.

Australia and New Zealand picked up part one of the series, however New Zealand opted not to pick up the other parts as such the other parts of the series were picked up as Australian only standards.

New Zealand now references the ISO/IEC international standard directly for the other parts of the series.

The standard replacements are as follows:

AS/NZS 3080 (customer premises) was superseded by AS 11801.2 in conjunction with AS/NZS 11801.1 (General requirements)

AS/NZS ISO/IEC 24702 (Industrial) was superseded by AS 11801.3 in conjunction with AS/NZS 11801.1 (General requirements)

AS/NZS ISO/IEC 15018 (Homes) was superseded by AS 11801.4 in conjunction with AS/NZS 11801.1 (General requirements)

AS/NZS ISO/IEC 24764 (Data centres) was superseded by AS 11801.5 in conjunction with AS/NZS 11801.1 (General requirements)

Additionally, a new standard for distributed building standards was introduced which deals with distributed building services.

AS 11801.6— Information technology - Generic cabling for customer premises, Part 6: Distributed building services (ISO/IEC 11801-6:2017, MOD).

Additionally, the technical specification for requirements for remote powering of terminal equipment SA TS 29125 was updated.

Some of the key changes include the introduction of modular plug terminated links (MPTL) the introduction of Class I and II (Category 8.1 and Category 8.2), the introduction OM5, the replacement of OS1 with OS1a and the grandfathering of OM1 and OM2 fibre categories.
