Constructing a new Structure- Building Codes
The information in this document should be useful in making design-related decisions that will not only satisfy the move to our new building Information Technology (IT) requirements but also meet the needs of the building and its future occupants with respect to voice, video and data communications. The intention of this document is to provide a comprehensive understanding and reference guide that can be referred to when moving to our new building.
Moving into our new building we need to follow certain cable codes and specification. A properly designed network is based around components or wiring units. The components should also follow ...view middle of the document...
2 standard, also known as the known as the International Standard on Information Technology Generic Cabling for Customer Premises. These two documents are quite similar, although their terminology is different, and the ISO/IEC 11801 Ed. 2 standard permits an additional type of UTP cabling.
ANSI/TIA-569-C: Telecommunications Pathways and Spaces
This Standard specifies pathway and space design and construction practices in support of telecommunications media and equipment within buildings. Examples of pathways and spaces in single-tenant and multi-tenant buildings that are addressed in this Standard include: Wireless service entrance pathways, Entrance rooms, Building pathways, Distributor rooms, Access and Service Provider spaces, Distributor enclosures, Service entrance pathways, and Equipment outlet locations.
ANSI/TIA-569-C “Telecommunications Pathways and Spaces” was developed by the TIA TR-42.3 Pathways and Spaces Subcommittee and published in May, 2012. Significant changes from the previous edition include the adoption of revised temperature and humidity requirements to harmonize with ASHRAE class 1, 2, 3 and 4 requirements and the addition of power separation guidelines and lighting requirements.

ANSI/TIA-606-B “Administration Standard Telecommunications Infrastructure” was developed by the TIA TR-42.6 Infrastructure Administration Subcommittee and published in June, 2012. This Standard specifies four classes of administration based upon the complexity of the cabling plant being administered. An administration system for telecommunications infrastructure within buildings and between buildings may include:
* assigning identifiers to components of the infrastructure
* specifying elements of information that make up records for each identifier
* specifying relationships between these records to access the information they contain
* specifying reports presenting information on groups of records, and
* specifying graphical and symbolic requirements
* Classes of Administration
* Class 1 Administration
* Class 2 Administration
* Class 3 Administration
* Class 4 Administration
* Optional Identifiers for Infrastructure Elements
* Color-Coding Identification
* Permanent Labels
* Linkages and Reports
* Automated Infrastructure Management Systems
* Annexes addressing Identification of Patch Cords, Equipment Cords, and Direct Equipment-to-Equipment Cables, Telecommunications Grounding System Identification Example, and Graphical, Symbology, and Drawing Elements of Administration
