CSA ISO/IEC TR 24704:06 (R2021)
Information Technology - Customer Premises Cabling for Wireless Access Points (Adopted ISO/IEC TR 24704:2004, first edition, 2004-07)
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).
At the time of publication, ISO/IEC TR 24704:2004 is available from ISO and IEC in English only. CSA will publish the French version when it becomes available from ISO and IEC.
This Technical Report was reviewed by the CSA TCIT under the jurisdiction of the Strategic Steering Committee on Information Technology and deemed acceptable for use in Canada. (A committee membership list is available on request from the CSA Project Manager.) From time to time, ISO/IEC may publish addenda, corrigenda, etc. The CSA TCIT will review these documents for approval and publication. For a listing, refer to the CSA Information Products catalogue or CSA Info Update or contact a CSA Sales representative. This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been approved as a National Standard of Canada by the Standards Council of Canada.
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.
