Structured Cabling Standards

ACCL, as a matter of good practice, adheres to European and international Standards for the specification and installation of structured cabling systems as follows:

  • ISO 11801: Information technology – Generic-cabling for customer premises.
  • BS EN 50173-1-2009: Information technology – Generic-cabling systems: General requirements and office areas.
  • BS EN 50174 -1-2009: Information technology – Cabling installation: Specification and quality assurance.
  • BS EN 50174 -2-2009: Information technology – Cabling installation: Installation planning and practices inside buildings.
  • BS EN 50174 -3-2003: Information technology – Cabling installation – Installation planning and practices outside buildings.
  • BS EN 50310: The Standard that governs the application of equipotential bonding and earthing in buildings with information technology equipment.
  • BS EN 50346: Information technology – Cabling installation: Testing of installed cabling.
  • BS 6701-2010: Telecommunication equipment and cabling.

The diagram (below) demonstrates how standards fit within the development of a structured cabling system. For further information of the positive impact of these Standards on the design, installation and commissioning of a structured cabling network infrastructure contact ACCL.
