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 Canadian Advisory Committee (CAC) 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 Technical Report
- specifies the transmission performance for channels to support 10GBASE-T,
- specifies the methods to assess whether installed Class E and Class F channels meet 10GBASE-T requirements,
- provides mitigation techniques to improve the performance of an existing installation to meet the 10GBASE-T requirements.
NOTE 1 The channel transmission performance specified in this TR is derived from IEEE 802.3AN.
NOTE 2 IEEE 802.3AN specifies requirements beyond the frequency range specified for Class E of ISO/IEC 11801:2002 and additional parameters to those specified for Class E and Class F cabling in ISO/IEC 11801:2002.
NOTE 3 This Technical Report does not re-specify Class E and Class F cabling of ISO/IEC 11801:2002.
