  • ICEA S-98-688, 2012 Edition, November 27, 2012 - BROADBAND TWISTED PAIR CABLE AIRCORE, POLYOLEFIN INSULATED, COPPER CONDUCTORS TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS

    This Standard covers mechanical and electrical requirements foraircore broadband twisted pair telecommunications cable withpolyolefin insulated copper conductors.

    Broadband cables as described in this Standard are primarilyintended to supply broadband services from the remote switch to thecustomer premises. The remote switch in turn is normally suppliedby fiber link from the central office. The reach of these systemsis a function of the signal to noise ratio, deployed protocol andbit-rate, and may exceed 1000 m (3280 ft). These systems will allowthe simultaneous transmission of regular telephone services,computer, fax and several TV channels. The TV services may beinteractive or may be High Definition TV.

    PURPOSE: The purpose of this Standard is to establish generictechnical requirements that may be referenced by individualtelecommunications cable specifications covering products intendedfor broadband outside plant use. The parameters covered providematerial, construction, and performance requirements that areapplicable to aircore, polyolefin insulated and jacketed cables oflimited pair counts, including a variety of shield and jacketcombinations.

    Because this Standard does not cover all details of individualcable design, it cannot be used as a single document forprocurement of product. It is intended to be used in conjunctionwith an individual product specification that provides completedesign details for the specific cable type and designates theapplicable performance requirements. Such individual cablespecifications may be prepared either by the user or themanufacturer. The specification designated for procurement is atthe option of the user.
