Information technology — Data centre facilities and infrastructures — Part 5: Telecommunications cabling infrastructure (Adopted ISO/IEC TS 22237-5:2018, first edition, 2018-05)
Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This document addresses the wide range of telecommunications cabling infrastructures within data centres based upon the criteria and classifications for availability within ISO/IEC TS 22237-1.
This document specifies requirements and recommendations for the following:
a) information technology and network telecommunications cabling (e.g. SAN and LAN);
b) general information technology cabling to support the operation of the data centre;
c) telecommunications cabling to monitor and control, as appropriate, power distribution, environmental control and physical security of the data centre;
d) other building automation cabling;
e) pathways, spaces and enclosures for the telecommunications cabling infrastructures.
Safety and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements are outside the scope of this document and are covered by other standards and regulations. However, information given in this document may be of assistance in meeting these standards and regulations.
