International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference EN 60728-13:2010
Title Cable networks for television signals, sound signals and interactive services - Part 13: Optical systems for broadcast signal transmissions
Project Number 22123
Abstract/Scope IEC 60728-13:2010(E) specifies the basic system parameters and methods of measurement for optical distribution system having a system outlet in order to assess the system performance and its performance limits. It describes the system specification of FTTH (fibre to the home) network for broadcast signal transmission. It is also applicable to the broadcast signal transmission using telecommunication network if it satisfies the optical portion of this standard. It describes RF transmission for broadcast and narrowcast (limited area distribution of broadcast) signals over FTTH, and introduces xPON system as a physical layer media.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
