The cabling specified in this Technical Report is considered to be in addition to and not in place of the infrastructure specified in ISO/IEC 11801. This Technical Report specifies a customer premises cabling system infrastructure for an array of coverage areas that form a wireless network grid within a building. It is applicable to all of the balanced and optical fibre cabling classes specified in ISO/IEC 11801.
This Technical Report specifies design and configuration of an ISO/IEC 11801 compliant horizontal cabling subsystem. Requirements and guidelines are provided with respect to a) minimum configuration, structure and topology, b) performance requirements for permanent links and channels, c) coverage and location of telecommunications outlets, d) interfaces to wireless access points, e) power delivery over balanced cabling.
While placement and security of wireless access points are outside the scope of this Technical Report, placement of telecommunications outlets (TOs) is specified to enable flexible deployment of wireless services.
Safety (electrical, fire, etc.) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements are outside the scope of this Technical Report.
