Information technology — Generic cabling for customer premises — Part 9907: Specifications for direct attach cabling (Adopted ISO/IEC TR 11801-9907:2019, first edition, 2019-07)
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 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).
For brevity, this Standard will be referred to as CSA ISO/IEC TR 11801-9907 throughout.
At the time of publication, ISO/IEC TR 11801-9907:2019 is available from ISO and IEC in English only. CSA Group will publish the French version when it becomes available from ISO and IEC.
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 part of ISO/IEC 11801, which is a Technical Report, provides definitions for, and examples of, direct attach cabling configurations.
This document provides performance specifications for Classes D, E, EA, F, FA, I and II direct attach cabling by reference to ISO/IEC 11801-1.
Informative limits for Class I direct attach cabling to support 5 m short reach mode application according to ISO/IEC/IEEE 8802-3:2017/AMD3, i.e. 25GBASE-T and 40GBASE-T, are provided in Annex A.
Test methods will be provided in the second edition of ISO/IEC 14763-4.
NOTE ISO/IEC 14763-4 is the test method for End to End (E2E) link. It can be also used for direct attach cabling. Test methods for Classes EA, F, FA, I, II will be provided in the second edition of ISO/IEC 14763-4.
Direct attach cabling connects two pieces of equipment, it has connectors at each end, and no intermediate connecting hardware.
